October 2017 Employee of the Month

Reggie Calo

Fire Department

Reggie was born and raised in Porterville Ca. He attended and graduated from Monache High School in 2008. During High School he was involved in wrestling, track and field, cross-country, student body and band. Fun fact: Reggie was 2007 homecoming king. After high school, he attended Porterville College and transferred to Fresno Pacific University in 2013, where he earned a bachelor’s degree in Criminology and Restorative Justice.

Reggie began his career in the fire service when he was 19 for Tulare County Fire Department. In April of 2014, he was hired as a reserve Firefighter for the City of Porterville. A year later, the department offered Reggie a full-time position as firefighter on October 1st 2015. Throughout the past two years, Reggie has taken several rescue classes and Driver Operator 1a and 1b. He is currently the department's Public Information Officer along with two others and is working his way towards the investigation unit.

When not at work, Reggie likes to spend time with family and friends. He loves to snowboard, paint ball, dance, watch the Los Angeles Chargers play and take road trips with his fiancée Vanessa (soon to be wife). Reggie has an older brother named Kelly who lives in Folsom and a younger sister named Katelin who is currently attending Cal Poly.  Both his parents live in town.  His family and fiancée are my huge supporters; He says he wouldn’t be where he is today if it weren’t for them and it’s a blessing to have them in his life.

Reggie would also like to give a shout out to his co-workers. He says all of them are great leaders and role models. Reggie considers them his mentors and would like to thank each one of them for pushing each other to become the best and helping each other out. Good job, guys.
