VIDEO: “Dan dedicated his entire adult life to this community,” said Shawn O’Brien, Highland Volunteer Fire Department. The community is mourning the loss of a longtime beloved firefighter, Dan Stack. He unexpectedly passed away last Friday. Channel 11 spoke with firefighters who served alongside Dan for decades. One of his fellow firefighters responded to his home. “I heard the call and I only live two streets away so I rushed over was the first responder on scene and when I went upstairs his son who is a firefighter here was starting the resuscitation efforts. It’s surreal when you walk in and you see it’s one of yours that you’ve known for 35 years, it’s tough very tough,” said Mark Pierson, former fire chief at Highland Volunteer Fire Department.
