Fire Crews Donate During Pink Ribbon Month PDF E-mail

pink fire logoThe West Carrollton Fire Department will donate $677.40 to the Pink Ribbon Girls during the city council meeting at 6:30 p.m. on Tuesday, Oct. 8.

The department raised the money through the sale of shirts with a pink fire department logo. The department personnel will wear the shirts during October as their ‘duty’ shirts. Several nurses at local hospitals, as well as city staff and fire department family members also purchased the shirts.

The Pink Ribbon Girls is a nonprofit organization which offers free services such as housekeeping, babysitting and meals for patients who are fighting breast cancer. Visit for more information.

A few remaining t-shirts are still available at a cost of $10 for short-sleeve and $15 for long-sleeve. Additional orders must be placed by Oct. 10. Deuce Shirts of Centerville contributed to the cause by helping to defray the shirt costs.

For more information, contact the West Carrollton Fire Department at (937) 847-4645.

PD Chief to Retire Oct. 18 PDF E-mail

Richard Barnhart Chief websiteAfter working for the city for more than 31 years, West Carrollton Police Chief Rick Barnhart will retire on Friday, Oct. 18.

A public reception will be held from 1 to 4 p.m. on Friday, Oct. 18, in the West Carrollton Police Department Training Room, in the Civic Center, 300 E. Central Ave.

Barnhart joined the department in 1982 as a patrol officer, and served in that role for over 5 years. He was promoted to sergeant in 1987, and then to deputy chief in 1995. In 2000, he was appointed to serve as the police chief.

The size of the department staff is nearly the same as it was in the 1990s, however, technology has dramatically changed the department during his career, he said. “We’ve gone from writing ledgers in the dispatch center to a computer-aided dispatch. In the road room where we take reports, we’ve gone from typewriters to computers; and in the cruisers, we’ve added video recording devices and computers,” he said.

 In 2007, Barnhart oversaw the renovations and expansions to the 5,000 square foot addition to the police department at the Civic Center.
