Five local fire departments that failed to submit standardized test results to Hardin County government now are in compliance and will resume their monthly financial allotments in May, said David Underwood, director of Hardin County Emergency Management.
Upton, Sonora, Ky. 86, West Point and White Mills fire departments all missed the deadline and had their allotments pulled for three months, but Underwood said they have met all obligations to resume the payments later this year.
Hardin Fiscal Court approved a measure in January to withhold monthly allotments for February, March and April from those departments failing to submit the results of four tests — ladder, hose, self-contained breathing apparatus and pump — by Jan. 17.
The test results are required to ensure departments are up-to-date.
Most of the departments receive around $500 each month, according to county officials.
