Chief Steele Celebrates 30 Years

with the Hendersonville Fire Department

On January 7, 1976, Chief Jamie H. Steele began his career with the

Hendersonville Fire Department.  At that time the Fire Chief was Carl Moore

and the department averaged less than 200 calls per year.  There were only twenty paid

men and 15 volunteers.  When asked about his long career, the Chief said

"It has been an honor to be a part of such a great department.  I'm grateful to God

for placing the desire in my heart to serve and thank the City of Hendersonville

for the opportunity to serve."
