This week, the Glenpool Service Spotlight features Lieutenant Buddy Hackler. He’s been with the Glenpool Fire Department for twelve years, first as a volunteer, and joined the Department full-time in 2014. He enjoys the unpredictability of the job and the excitement and challenges of specific calls. Chief Paul Newton says, “Buddy is detail-orientated and solves complex problems efficiently. He is a quiet leader that motivates those around him with his professionalism and attention to detail.”
Buddy came to Glenpool in 1997 and likes the small-town feel. When he’s not serving the citizens of Glenpool, he is enjoying his three children and five grandchildren, coaching 5th grade football, and helping with the school wrestling program.
