Patrick Martin

Patrick Martin grew up in the sleepy little town of Pacific Palisades, California.

After high school, he moved to Ventura County where he lived and managed a

200-acre ranch and spent his days farming hay, feeding pigs and collecting eggs

to sell to the local markets in town. In July of 2013, his girlfriend dragged him all

the way to Boulder, Colorado. Patrick wasn’t too happy about the move at first.

However, an interest in firefighting and helping others lead Patrick to complete an

EMT certification class—which changed everything! Hoping to get involved with

a department, Patrick was blessed to find LFPD in February of 2014. Since joining

the department, Patrick has met and has the honor of working along side some

of the greatest (and most talented) people he has ever known. LFPD has made

Patrick an even better person, and has given him the opportunity to obtain several

certifications such as Swiftwater Rescue, Wildland Firefighter, and he is now in the

process of completing the Firefighter 1 academy, which he will finish in November

of 2014. He loves being a volunteer firefighter and he hopes to eventually make

it his full time career. Patrick loves the town of Lyons (where he now lives!) and

helping all the great people who live in it.

Allan Sheeley

Allan moved to the Colorado front-range area from the flat, humid, swampy suburbs of Washington, D.C. in 2004. It was a very good decision. After bouncing around Boulder County for the last ten years, Allan joined Lyons Fire in February 2014, and moved to Lyons in July 2014. Allan’s primary interests include: Hitting an enormous tire with a sledge hammer, eating donuts, and walking his dog, Phoenix (AKA CHOMPA). You are also likely to see Allan on the Hall and Picture Rock trails, on a white Yeti 575 mountain bike, or recaffeinating at the Barking Dog. If you see him around town, say hi!
