Cindy Applegate

Board Member

I am a twenty-two-year resident of Colorado.  I graduated from Oklahoma State University and the University of Oklahoma and currently teach chemistry at the University of Colorado-Colorado Springs.  I became interested in the fire board after attending several open board meetings and was elected for the 2012- 2016 term. I was selected for another term in 2018 and am currently serving until 2024.   I ran for the board because I was concerned about the budget and finances at LFPD.  I believe that the current board is addressing these concerns and am confident that the Fire Chief is working very hard to have a fiscally stable district.   We would encourage any interested Larkspur resident to come to our monthly meetings and find out what is happening with LFPD.

Board Member

I was a volunteer Firefighter with LFPD from 2016 until retiring from those duties in 2021.  Now by serving on the district’s board, it is a continuation of my commitment to our fire district.   My professional background has been in the medical field, working as a Flight Nurse with AirLife-Denver starting in 1985, then progressing my career as a Physician Assistant (PA) for the past seventeen years.  As an additional asset of experience to the board, I have a bachelor’s degree in business management.

I’ve lived in our fire district since 2010 and have followed the circumstances of LFPD over these years.  Presently, LFPD has the fiscal security to continue providing professional and high-quality community centered Fire/EMS services.  This is to the immense credit of the fire officer leadership and the district’s board.   It is my intention as a board member to facilitate this stability while maintaining vigilance of challenges on the horizon for the district.
