After escaping from the exploding Spencer Estate with Chris, Jill, and Rebecca on the helicopter at the end of RE1, Barry relocated his wife and two daughters, Moira and Polly, to Canada. It is not known for sure whether or not Barry was inside the city limits at the time of the outbreak of the Raccoon City incident in late September of 1998, but he did rescue his friend, S.T.A.R.S. member Jill Valentine, and U.B.C.S. member Carlos Oliveira at the end of RE3, via helicopter, right before the city was destroyed by the missle sent en route to Raccoon City by the U.S. Government in the early hours of October 1, 1998. After the incident, Chris, Jill, Barry, Rebecca, Leon, and Claire became part of an Anti-Umbrella Task Force, formed to help stop Umbrella from continuing their actions any further.
