Firefighter Spotlight

Senior Firefighter, EMT Jonathan Ammons



Why did you join the Hendersonville Fire Department?

Living in Hendersonville my whole life, I wanted a career where I could serve

my friends and family in the community we live in.  




What you like most about Hendersonville Fire Department?

What I like most are the members of the department. 

We are like one big family.  We spend holidays and birthdays

together.  I also like knowing that when we go out to do fire prevention

classes, it helps educate the children of the community. 

The children are our future and instilling fire safety in them is very important.



What is the most significant development in your career?

The most significant development would have to be the new

Custom E-One Engine Six and the new E-One Aerial Platform Truck

that our department just got a few weeks ago.  Both are state of the art

and help us perform our job with great efficiency. 



Community Activities?

My family attends the Hendersonville Church of Christ. 



  What are your future plans?

I plan to continue my education through the fire department

and continue to rise through the ranks. 




I am married to my loving wife Shannon and we have a wonderful daughter, Addison.



The Hendersonville Fire Department has been such a blessing

to my life.  It gives me great satisfaction to serve the Hendersonville Community.
