Fire Investigator Bob Galoppi
Why did you join the Hendersonville Fire Department?
I joined the Hendersonville Fire Department to continue my
career path in public safety which I have been doing
since 1983. I've always known this is the career choice I
would take because I love what I do and it is so very rewarding.
What do you like most about the Hendersonville Fire Department?
It is a honor to be given the opportunity to serve in this profession
within the community. What I like most is that I am given the ability
to advance myself in both education and experience
while not being lost in a larger department. This is not
only a great department to work for but also to grow with.
What is the most significant development in your career?
There have been many positive changes within the
department since I first began; however, the advancement
of my current position of Special Operations Coordinator
has meant so much. I achieve over $400,000 a year in
grants for our department and this gives me a great
sense of accomplishment.
What are your future plans?
I will keep working with the City of Hendersonville and
plan on continuing my education and obtaining my
Any community activities?
I am a volunteer firefighter for William County Fire/Rescue
and I coach a Little League hockey team.
