Spokane Valley, Wash. Firefighter Dan Patterson currently remains on life support after suffering a cardiac arrest while out on a run, on July 21, 2022.

According to details posted to a GoFundMe page to assist with Patterson’s medical expenses, the firefighter had just worked a 24-hour shift and had been out on a run when he experienced the medical event.

The Spokane Valley Fire Department (SVFD) said, “Firefighter Patterson believed in keeping himself fit for duty and would often head out for a run after completing his regular shift. 

This day was no different, and after his shift at Station 6, where he was working as an out-of-class Engineer, he drove to Station 2 and went out for his regular run routine.”

The GoFundMe page reported that following his run, Patterson called his wife to let her know he was headed back to the station as he was not feeling well. 

The page read: “At approximately 1240 Dan experienced a significant medical event that caused Dan to go into cardiac arrest. We believe Dan knew that he was in trouble and that his best chance was his fire-family – he knew where help was.”

“Crew members on A-Shift remarkably located Dan at the front door of Station 2 and immediately began resuscitative efforts. Dan’s brothers and sister performed flawlessly and were able to attain return of spontaneous circulation.”

He was taken to Sacred Heart Medical Center, where he currently remains in the intensive care unit on life support.

As reported by KHQ Q6 news, according to an updated statement shared by the Spokane Valley Fire Department on 31 July 2022, neurological exam results have shown that, sadly, 53-year-old Patterson is not expected to recover. 

The department wrote: “However, this will not be the end of Firefighter Patterson’s service.”

“Firefighter Patterson is an organ donor, and the family will be honouring his wishes to give to others once again.”

Patterson, who joined the SVFD in 2009, is well known for his ‘exemplary service’ and strong work ethic. In 2014 he was awarded the SVFD Lifesaving Medal after he jumped into the Spokane River while out on one of his runs to save a young child’s life.

The SVFD Fire Chief Frank Soto said,

“His work ethic, his care for his family and others, and his passion for making sure the people in his life knew he loved them will remain with us all. I ask that you all hug each other more and tell the people every day in your life that they are important to you. Dan would have wanted that from all of us.”

The Spokane Valley Fire Department will honour Patterson with the Line of Duty Death Funeral Protocol and will gather at his bedside as he is draped with the American flag prior to entering surgery for the organ donation procedure once a donor match is found.
