Lt. Kirk Robinson 

Lt. Robinson began his career with the Bothell Fire Department in April of 2001. Lt. Robinson was deeply passionate about helping others and during his tenure, he served on the Technical and Water Rescue Teams, Honor Guard, Mercer Island Marine Patrol, and was a CBT Instructor.

Lt. Robinson assisted with the 9/11 response effort at ground zero, and in 2005, deployed to Hurricane Katrina to provide aid to those whose lives were devastated by the disaster.

Each year, Lt. Robinson participated in the Firefighter Stair Climb to raise funds for the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society, and he was always among the first to help with department activities like holiday parties and the annual 4th of July Pancake Breakfast. In October of 2017, Firefighter Robinson was promoted to Lieutenant, a testament to his devotion to the community and department. Lt. Robinson touched every life he came across. He was a beloved member of the Bothell Fire Department and will forever be remembered for his compassion and drive to make a difference.
