Meet Dan, he is this week’s Hero. Dan started his public service as a fire explorer at the young age of 12 with the Ashland City Fire Dept. Since then, he has never looked back.
Dan has spent most of his adult life working in emergency services. His hard worked earned him to become the EMS Chief. Along with his primary duty, he is also the Cheatham County Medical Examiner Investigator, Reserve Deputy for the Sheriff department, and also a volunteer Criminal Investigator for the District Attorney General.
He is a proud husband to a wife of fifteen years and a father to 3 wonderful boys. Dan had told me that he consciously chooses to be a public servant knowing that it does not pay as well as athletes or movie stars. He has missed birthdays and holidays to help comfort those who were hurting or in need. He loves to help and serve others because that is who he is and who he always will be.
Thank you Dan for serving, and for doing all that you do, not only for the community, but also for your family. People that do what you do with a selfless heart are the real stars and heroes whether you think so or not.
