John F Kennedy was president when Clinton Lowman signed up to be a volunteer fireman in Burke County. For 50 years he has seen it all.
"Oh yeah, it was pretty rough at times," he said on Tuesday. "But there were good things too."
Lowman, according to EMS Director Mike Long, is the oldest active licensed Emergency Medical Technician in North Carolina and likely is one of only a handful of people that age in that position across the nation.
"I just enjoy being out with the boys," said Lowman as he talked about his days as a firefighter.
While he is trained for every job, his duties these days are mostly in the traffic control area. He helps direct drivers around and away from fires and accident scenes.
Fire Chief Brand Lingerfelt said Lowman is an example to all firefighters and pointed to a situation last year that shows his dedication."He and I were first at a scene and he grabbed the nozzle and fought a vehicle fire with me", he said. "He could still handle it at his age."
Lowman received a standing ovation at the county commissioners meeting Tuesday night. He said he will keep volunteering and responding to fires and wrecks as long as he is able to.
