From a young age, Robby sought to serve his local community. In 1975, Robby became the youngest volunteer fire fighter in Pamlico Co when he joined the Triangle Volunteer Fire Department at age 16, requiring special consent from the Pamlico Co. Board of Commissioners. He held multiple offices in the fire department during his 20-year tenure, most notably acting as Fire Chief in 1982 and 1983.
