Darrell Grober has once again been elected to serve as fire chief of the Granbury Volunteer Fire Department, and Mack Bennett, the new assistant fire chief, was voted Firefighter of the Year.
The GVFD elections were held on Jan. 3 at Fire Station No. 1 in Granbury.
Tisha Evans was voted as Rookie of the Year.
The treasurer remains Marty Marciniak, and Matt Hohon was re-elected as secretary.
Grober said that Bennett, “has always gone above and beyond what was expected of our firefighters. I’m very happy to have him serve as my assistant chief.”
Grober is beginning his seventh consecutive term as fire chief, after being voted to the position for the first time in 2007. According to available records, Grober is already believed to be the longest-serving fire chief in Granbury history, with the city’s first fire chief having been named in 1907. Grober’s tenure had been tied with that of former fire chief Kelton Conner, who just retired from his position as County Attorney.
