Senior Firefighter Adam Hatela



Why did you join the Hendersonville Fire Department?

I wanted a career that provided me the opportunity to help others

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. 



  What are your future plans?

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.
