Welcome to Fletcher Fire & Rescue Department 

Captain Jeff Privette

Fletcher Fire and Rescue is pleased to announce the recent promotion of Jeff Privette from Lieutenant to Captain. He began his his career at Fletcher in 2009 as a fireman on A-Shift and is now Captain of that same shift. Capt. Privette is held in high regard by the people on his shift, some of which have been with him since the start.

But his firefighting career started before he arrived here with us. Capt. Privette started as a junior in Little River Volunteer Fire Dept. at age 15. Since then he has served the citizens of Transylvania and Henderson Co. with several different departments, Brevard Fire Dept., Rosman Fire Dept., and currently Etowah Horseshoe Fire Dept. He has held several potions from firefighter to 2nd Assist Chief. Capt. Privette displays the kind of leader we want to see, not only in our department, but in the fire service as a whole. With his experience and leadership ability we see great things ahead for him and his crew. 

“I would like to thank everyone who lead, guided, and directed my path to where I am today. I would also like to thank my family, especially my wife, for allowing me to pursue the greatest job in the world.” Jeff Privette

Our hope for you is that your passion for this job will continue to grow. Well done Captain!



Congratulations to Senior Firefighter Bryan Buchanan on the completion of his Bachelor of Science Degree in Fire Administration from Liberty University. Thank you for your dedication to the fire service.
