Firefighter Spotlight

Senior Firefighter, EMT Jeremy Jones

Why did you join the Hendersonville Fire Department?

After 5 years service with the Marine Corps was

completed, I wanted to continue in a career

of helping others.  The USMC gave me a sense

of duty and a need was instilled in me. 

The Hendersonville Fire Department has definitely

enabled me to continue a career of serving others

which is very gratifying.


What do you like most about the Hendersonville Fire Department?

The men I currently work with are great in showing

teamwork.  Also each day offers new challenges!!


What is the most significant development in your career?

I was happy to reach the 15 year mark in

my career.  Over the past 15 years as a

Senior Firefighter, I have been privileged to

help and protect all the citizens in the

Hendersonville area.  I couldn’t ask for a better

group of men to share a shift with. 

The support shown to each other is amazing

when it comes to teamwork.


Any community activities?

I look forward to another 15 years of serving the

Hendersonville Fire Department and gratefully

accept the nomination of being Firefighter

of the month.  I look forward to the future

challenges this career holds for me.


  What are your future plans?

I plan to continue training and teaching. 

I hope to play an increasing role in the development

of the fire department in the coming years.


Tell us about your family

I am married to my wife, Amy and we have

one daughter named Rachel.
