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.
