in their time of need. There is no greater reward than to have this
opportunity and I am forever grateful.
What you like most about Hendersonville Fire Department?
We are blessed with a proactive and forever moving forward culture
here at the Hendersonville Fire Department. This is what I appreciate most!!
Along with that, I appreciate my fellow firefighters who are like my second family.
What is the most significant development in your career?
I would say the addition of Station #6 along with our new custom
E-One Pumper #6 is one of the most significant developments in my career.
Just recently, we have added our new E-One Aerial Platform Truck.
Any Community Activities?
I enjoy conducting Fire Safety Classes for the children here in the community.

I plan to keep on serving the Hendersonville community through
continuing education and advancement.
I am blessed with a beautiful and supportive wife Amanda and two
loving children Aidan and Addison.
HFD is among the top Fire Departments in Tennessee and I look
forward to serving along side my brothers in the department for many years to come.
