News report on New Chief
On February 11th, 2021, The Lyons Fire Protection District Board announced at their monthly board meeting that Mr. Kevin Nunn was no longer able to accept the position as the next Fire Chief of Lyons Fire. Fortunately, during the initial hiring decision making process, the selection outcome had been very close between two of the final candidates, and Lyons Fire also had a well-qualified and extremely interested applicant in candidate Mr. Peter Zick. After hearing of Mr. Nunn’s decision, the Board reached out to Mr. Zick and offered him the position of Chief of Lyons Fire. Mr. Zick has since accepted the offer and we now plan on having Peter Zick as our next Lyons Fire Department Chief.
Chief Zick will fill the position that has recently been held by interim Fire Chief Steve Pischke, who is anticipated to stay on as Fire Marshall for Lyons Fire once Zick transitions into the Chief position. “Chief Zick comes to Lyons Fire with some excellent credentials and experience,” stated interim Chief Steve Pischke, “I anticipate that he will jump right in and become an active member of not only the department but the community. We look forward to having him on board!”
Chief Zick comes to Lyons with 30 years of fire department experience in fire suppression, prevention and emergency medical services. He began his career as a firefighter with Rural Metro Fire Department in Maricopa County, Arizona and has worked at several departments in both Arizona and Colorado. Throughout his career, Zick has worked his way through the ranks as a Firefighter/Paramedic, Engineer, Fire Lieutenant, Fire Captain, Battalion Chief, Deputy Chief and Fire Chief. He comes to Lyons with significant fire department and leadership experience, and we look forward to having him join our community.
When asked about joining the Lyons Fire Protection District community, Chief Zick stated “I am proud to be selected as the Fire Chief for the Lyons Fire Protection District. I am excited to join a great organization with outstanding, professional members and plan to be a very active member of the community”.
