The Temple Hill Volunteer Fire Department has been awarded a $38,667 federal grant. The grant comes from the Federal Emergency Management Agency Assistance to Firefighters Grant Program. The program awards grants directly to fire departments, emergency medical services organizations and state fire training academies, a news release issued by U.S. Rep. Brett Guthrie's office stated. The grant will be used toward purchasing personal protective equipment for Temple Hill firefighters. "The Temple Hill Volunteer Fire Department does excellent work in Barren County," Guthrie said in the news release. "This grant will help them purchase personal protective equipment, commonly referred to as ‘turn out gear,’ that will protect the crew while they are fighting fires. This will be an excellent investment for the Barren County community and will save lives. I am proud that the AFG program chose the Temple Hill Volunteer Fire Department for this competitive grant.”
