Daniel "Dan" Clancy is a character very briefly mentioned throughout the series. He is portrayed by Rodney Scott. Dan was the older brother of Jim Clancy, who died when he fell off of the roof of their childhood home. Dan is first seen in the pilot when he approaches and speaks to Melinda at hers and Jim's wedding. Jim and Dan were very close, and it is not obviously revealed that he is dead until later in the series, though it is heavily implied. After witnessing Dan's death, Jim decided he wanted to become a paramedic so that he would never have to watch another person die without being able to help them. Dan is mentioned here and there throughout the series, and is seen again for the final time in Season 4 Episode 7, "Threshold".
