Employee spotlight!

This month we would like to spotlight firefighter Joe Barnes. Joe is a lifelong resident of St. Bernard and has been married to his wonderful wife, Christina, for over 25 years. Joe and Christina have four adult children and six grandchildren.

Joe started his career with the St. Bernard Fire Department in March of 1990 and has served as an EMT and paramedic. He will soon be promoted to fire engineer.

Joe is currently one of two members who repair and maintain our 186 fire hydrants throughout the Village. Bringing hydrant repair and maintenance in-house has saved the Village thousands of dollars over the last few years.

Joe is also very involved in the community outside of his service to the Fire Department. He has coached for many years in both the schools and community leagues. Joe is a pre-marriage counselor for St. Clement Parish and serves as a Eucharistic Minister.
