Also, he has worked for multiple fire departments in central Ohio part-time. Currently, he works for the City of Mount Vernon Fire Department as a firefighter/paramedic.
Alongside his firefighting career, he is a business owner at Miller's Sugar Shack producing maple syrup. Assistant Chief Miller married his wife Megan in January 2019 and they had their first child in November 2020. Since Tyler grew up as a Mennonite, it gave him an advantage because he is fluent in Pennsylvania Dutch which gives him the ability to communicate with the large community of Amish that we serve in our district.
