Senior Firefighter Troy Bishop
Why did you join the Hendersonville Fire Department?
I have always found a great feeling of fulfillment in
helping people in need as well as facing and
overcoming challenging situations.
In joining HFD, I enjoy the best of both.
What do you like most about the Hendersonville Fire Department?
What I probably enjoy most are the opportunities
for growth and personal development. We are
encouraged to take various classes to continually
learn new skills and improve upon existing
skills and practices.
What is the most significant development in your career?
That would most likely be my recent promotion
to Senior Firefighter. It has allowed me to exercise
a greater scope of responsibilities and apply
much of what I have learned.
Any community activities?
I attend Life Church of Indian Lake where I serve on the Host Team.
What are your future plans?
To continue serving the community. I want to add to the
skill sets I currently have and to continually become more
effective as a member of HFD. I will continue to take on all
challenges with the Faith that God has a plan for us all.
