Firefighter Spotlight - July 2014

Firefighter Tony Wyrick

Why did you join the Hendersonville Fire Department?

Being a firefighter is something I always want to do. I really enjoy working for the Hendersonville Fire Department and in the town where I live.

What do you like most about HFD?

The people I work with! HFD has a great group of firefighters and that makes coming to work even better.

What is the most significant development in your career?

We were dispatched to a call for an elderly man with chest pain. We arrived before EMS and started working on him. EMS arrived and I rode in the back with them helping them work on the patient on the way to the hospital. A few shifts later, that gentleman came to the fire hall, shook all our hands, and thanked us for what we did. I will never forget that.

Are you involved with any community activities?

I volunteer at my kids' school whenever I can.

What are your future plans?

I plan on advancing my career one step at a time and ultimately retiring from the City of Hendersonville.

Family Information

I have two handsome boys, Drew, age 10 and Jake, age 6.
