Allyn Pierce

Before you listen to this episode we need to take a step back and understand what happened in Northern California in 2018. If you are from the West Coast, or even anywhere in the United States, you more than likely already know of what now appears to be "regular" fire seasons. At the time the ‘Camp Fire’ was the deadliest wildfire in California history. The towns of Paradise and Concow were almost completely destroyed, each losing about 95% of their structures, while the towns of Magalia and Butte Creek Canyon were also largely destroyed. Paradise is around 50 miles north of the California state capital, Sacramento.

I was connected to Allyn Pierce by Nick Ashby from Rockstar Garage. You might remember Allyn, moreso probably his Toyota Tundra, better known as Pandra due to his experience of surviving the 2018 Paradise Fire that devastated the city of Paradise, California. Pierce works in healthcare by day as a nurse but will forever be remembered for his bravery and astonishing heroics. His story which is remembered through social media is the life-affirming tale of real heroism in the face of what felt a certain death.

I caught up with Allyn two years after the experience to talk about how extraordinary things have happened to someone who considers themself to be just a regular guy. It is an opportunity to see from Allyn's perspective the changes that have come about through all of this.
