Hiseville gets $500,000 grant for fire station

GLASGOW — Two years after applying for a grant to build a new fire station, Hiseville Volunteer Fire Department got its wish in the form of a $500,000 check presented by the Kentucky lieutenant governor to the county on Wednesday morning.

Being able to build the new fire station will be a great benefit to the department, Barren County Judge-Executive Davie Greer told a group of community members gathered at Hiseville’s Main Street firehouse Wednesday. The rattle of the old heater and the slight shaking of the walls during big gusts of wind were testimony to the necessity of replacing the 43-year-old building.

“This firehouse is needed in the community,” Greer said.

Volunteer firefighters are some of the most self-sacrificing people in a community, Greer said, and she thanked all of them for their hard work.

“I think they’re the greatest people in the county to work with and to work and take care of the community,” Greer said. “I just want to thank you guys.”
