Allan moved to the Colorado front-range area from the flat, humid, swampy suburbs of Washington, D.C. in 2004 after finishing an undergraduate degree in Biology. It was a very good decision. After bouncing around Boulder County for about ten years, Allan joined Lyons Fire in February 2014, and moved to Lyons in July 2014. Since joining the department, Allan has earned EMT, Firefighter 1, HAZMAT Technician, Swiftwater Rescue, and Ice Rescue certifications.
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, re-caffeinating at the Barking Dog, or eating cheeseburgers at the Fork with fellow firefighter and neighbor Gregory Schrodt.
If you see him around town, say Hi!
