Battalion Chief Dan Miller called Lake County Firefighters and Lake EMS crews to his home on September 18, 2019.  While crews were assessing him, he went into cardiac arrest. Crews were able to resuscitate him on the way to the hospital, however, he his heart stopped several more times at the hospital.
