August 2019 Employee of the Month

Kirk Lowery

Fire Department


Kirk Lowery was born in Lindsay, California.  He was raised in Porterville where he attended area schools. Soon after graduating high school in 1999, he started his career in the fire service as a PCF firefighter for Tulare County Fire Department. From there he went to work for the U.S. Forest Service as a seasonal firefighter on a hand crew, then for Cal Fire as a seasonal firefighter. While working as a seasonal firefighter, he was also a reserve firefighter with the City of Porterville Fire Department.  He was hired on as a full-time firefighter with the Porterville Fire Department in 2006 and was promoted to Fire Engineer in 2009.

Kirk has been married to his wife Lindsey for 15 years; they have two children, a daughter, Reid, who will be starting high school this fall and a son, Jackson, who will be starting 5th grade. Kirk and his family enjoy spending time outdoors backpacking and bow hunting.

Kirk’s favorite part of the job is being able to impact people’s lives in a positive way; he also enjoys the camaraderie with the crew. He likes having a challenging job where he can learn something new every day.

Thank you, Kirk, for all your dedication and hard work. Congratulations for being chosen as our Employee of the Month for August 2019!
