Edneyville Fire Rescue Membership
Lowell became a member in 1982 at the age of 16. He has held multiple offices during that time, up to and including Chief of the Department from 1995 to 2001. He was also Chief again in 2013. He has also worked as a full time paid firefighter with Asheville Fire Department. It was during Lowell’s stint as Chief back in 1997 that Edneyville first decided to go from being a strictly volunteer department to going through the growing pains of adding paid personnel. He again took the position of Chief in 2013 when we first hired a paid Deputy Chief as to have a supervisor the newly paid Chief could answer to. During his tenure here, other than the period he was a paid firefighter at Asheville, he has worked for the Henderson County Sheriff’s Department and the Polk County Sheriff’s Department. As of December 3, 2018, Lowell will be sworn in as Sheriff of Henderson County. Lowell has served on our Board of Directors since 2002 and currently holds the position of Vice President on our Board and is a lifetime member here at the department.
