Lafayette’s newest fire department captain has some experience coming into the position.

Joseph Barker was sworn-in Wednesday as captain of Fire Station Two. The 22 year veteran of the department says he’s glad to return to its management ranks.

“I’m very anxious and looking forward to starting at my new position at (Station) Two. I’m staying on the C-Shift, so I know all the guys that are down there – a great group of guys.”
