Firefighter Spotlight

Senior Firefighter Kevin Paseur

Why did you join the Hendersonville Fire Department?

After working in management and operating a small business

I had the opportunity to test for the HFD.  I jumped at the chance

to leave the paper pushing and number crunching and

begin a career that would offer physical challenges and

require teamwork.


What do you like most about the Hendersonville Fire Department?

What I like most about the department is the camaraderie. 

Iím proud to be a member of a team with guys from a

variety of backgrounds.  We spend 1/3 of our lives together

working for a common goal.  When things get dicey, someone

has your back.  At the end of the day, after significant incident,

you lay down with a real feeling of accomplishment


What is the most significant development in your career?

I was fortunate to be one of the original members of

the Dive Team.  This gave me the opportunity to marry

my longtime passion of diving which was my childhood dream career.


Any community activities?

E-board member of Hendersonville Fire Fighter Local 3460,

we support several programs and community groups.


  What are your future plans?

I look forward to the second half of my career with HFD. 

Retirement seems a long way off, so for now Iíll go fishing

in the Gulf whenever I have the chance.


Tell us about your family

Iíve been happily married to Traci for 23 years.  We live

 in Hendersonville with Otis, our 12 year old Bassett Hound.
