Patrick Doyle

Captain & Paramedic
Goodyear Fire Department
Goodyear, AZ

With over 25 years of dedicated service under his belt, Captain Patrick Doyle has been a steadfast pillar in the Goodyear Fire Department. His dedication has not only been in fire suppression but also in providing vital emergency medical care to the residents of Goodyear, Arizona.

On May 25, 2023, a chilling call at 1711 hours summoned Captain Doyle and his team to respond to a pediatric drowning at a community pool. Upon arrival, Captain Doyle faced the heart-wrenching sight of an unresponsive five-year-old boy, being attended to by a City of Avondale police officer. Undeterred, Captain Doyle and the crew of Engine 183 swung into action. Under his leadership, they quickly cleared the child’s airway, began CPR/MICR, and stabilized him, ultimately achieving a return of spontaneous circulation (ROSC).

Their exemplary on-scene response, prioritizing stabilization before transportation, proved invaluable, and the child was subsequently discharged from Phoenix Children’s Hospital without any deficits. 

This life-saving intervention is a testament to Captain Doyle’s unwavering commitment and expertise, making him a deserving nominee for the Star of Life Award.
