The fall harvest season is coming up soon, so motorists should be aware of the large farm equipment that will be on the roadways during this time. The harvest will start on October 1st so be prepared to to encounter slow-moving farm vehicles on the rural, two lane roads.

According to the Minnesota Department of Transportation, from 2011 to 2015, there were 688 crashes involving farm vehicles that resulted in 23 fatalities and 348 injuries. Nearly half of the fatalities were an occupant of the farm vehicle. Twenty-two percent of all farm equipment crashes and 29 percent of the fatalities were distraction-related. Other factors were speed-related and alcohol-related.

Motorists should:
• Watch for debris dropped by trucks hauling sugar beets and other crops.
• When approaching farm equipment, slow down and use caution.
• Be patient and wait for a safe place to pass.
• Wear seatbelts.
• Drive with headlights on at all times.

Farm equipment operators should:
• Use lights and flashers to make equipment more visible.
• Use slow-moving vehicles emblems on equipment traveling less than 30 mph.
• Drive slow-moving vehicles in the right-hand lane as close to the edge of the roadway as possible.
• Consider using an escort vehicle when moving equipment, especially at night and if the equipment is large enough that it may extend across the center line.
• Avoid encouraging or signaling motorists to pass. Pull over when safe, and let traffic pass.
• Pick up any debris left on the highway by equipment.
• Plan their routes so wide equipment will not or damage signs, guardrails, light poles or other roadway structures.

Please use extra caution while traveling on Clay County roadways during the harvest season.

At the Clay County Commission meeting on Tuesday, Sgt. Darin Bredman and Deputy Jason Lien recieved Lifesaving Awards for their actions on the early morning hours of July 23rd.

Sgt. Bredman and Deputy Lien responded to a medical assist call in the city of Barnesville. They were informed that a 25-year-old male was not conscience and not breathing. They were in the city of Barnesville at the time of call and arrived within minutes. Sgt. Bredman and Deputy Lien, along with Barnesville Officer Pearson determined the male was not breathing and did not have pulse. Deputy Lien began chest compressions and Sgt. Bredman provided rescue breathing until paramedics with Barnesville Ambulance arrived on scene and continued with lifesaving efforts.

The male is Kyle Preston (pictured below with Sgt. Bredman and Deputy Lien) and is remarkably healthy. Paramedics said with no uncertainty that if were not for the quick response and actions taken by officers, Mr. Preston would not be here.

Also picuted below is Taylor Gunderson, who remained calm and called 911 as well as Kyle's parents.

Good work and Congratulations Sgt. Bredman and Deputy Lien!

Today marks the 1st day for public schools in MN. We are sure you have noticed all the school buses and excited kids this morning! With that, we would like to remind you on the importance of being observant for buses stopping to pick up/drop off kids. Did you know the fines for not stopping for a school bus stop arm has increased to $500? Also, if a person passes on the right hand side or fails to stop with children present outside the bus with the stop arm out can be charged with a Gross Misdemeanor with a mandatory court date. Please be careful and continue to drive safely!!

As our local public schools in MN are ready to start up again for the 2017-2018 school year, it's time for that reminder to continue to drive safe and be observant. This time of year has anxious kids walking to/from school, presence of school buses and new bus routes, and an increase of morning and afternoon traffic near pick up and drop off points at these schools. Please continue to drive cautious and keep an eye out for these little ones as they start the school year!!! Be safe!
