DAVIESS COUNTY, Ky. (WEHT) – The ribbon is cut for a new state-of-the-art fire station in Daviess County.

This will help the firefighters serve the community better than ever.

Fire Chief Jeremy Smith shares his excitement for the new facility.

We were able to secure some federal monies for this project and with our local and state government’s help we were able to complete this project. We are tickled to death to have this facility. We can do so much more training. It’s going to be such a bigger benefit to our community and our firefighters.”
