Emergency medical services workers honored in Lester Prairie

LESTER PRAIRIE, MN – Former North Air Care flight nurse Debra Schott and former Howard Lake Fire Chief Daryl Drusch were among those honored during a National EMS Memorial Bike Ride stop Sept. 25 along the Dakota Rail Regional Trail in Lester Prairie’s Central Park.

Schott died June 28, 2019 in a North Memorial Air Care helicopter crash while on duty, and Drusch died from a heart attack Jan. 13.

The National EMS Memorial Bike Ride, Inc. honors Emergency Medical Services personnel by organizing and implementing long distance cycling events that memorialize and celebrate the lives of those who serve every day, those who have become sick or injured while performing their duties, and those who have died in the line of duty.

The National EMS Memorial Bike Ride had to make some changes this year due to the COVID-19 pandemic, and scheduled several smaller local rides instead, according to board member Edward Eroe.

The Sept. 25 ride went from Wayzata to Lester Prairie.

The ceremony in Lester Prairie included reading the list of names of this year’s honorees, as well as comments and prayers from Eroe and other riders.

Debra’s husband, Gary Schott of Lester Prairie, spoke about Debra and what her work as a flight nurse had meant to her.

A number of local emergency services were represented at the event, including North Memorial Air Care (which did a flyover to end the ceremony), Ridgeview EMS, North Memorial EMS, Lester Prairie Fire Department, Lester Prairie Police Department, Winsted Police Department, McLeod County Sheriff’s Office, M Health Fairview EMS, and Howard Lake Fire Department







Seven hour stand-off ends safely near Hutchinson

HUTCHINSON – According to the McLeod County Sheriff’s Department, its dispatch received a 911 call from 14594 Hwy 7, just outside the eastern Hutchinson city limits, yesterday, Oct. 1, at 1726 hours.  (The address listed belongs to Yamaha Motorsports and Marine.) The call was about an adult male who was acting erratically.

The first deputy arrived on scene at approximately 1732 hours, and encountered the male inside of the business armed with multiple edged weapons. It was apparent that the male was experiencing a significant mental health crisis.

Additional deputies and officers from the Hutchinson Police Department, Minnesota State Patrol, and Minnesota DNR arrived to assist with the incident.  A member of the Carver County Mobile Crisis Response team also responded to the scene to assist.

After approximately 7 and one-half hours, deputies were able to take the adult male into custody without incident at 0156 hours.  The male individual was transported to the Hutchinson hospital for evaluation.  The deputies cleared the incident with reports.  The Sheriff’s Office was also assisted by Allina Ambulance.
