Northfield EMS carries the antidote for opioid overdose – call 911 for help
Northfield Police Chief Monte Nelson and EMS Director Brian Edwards want local community members to know that they can and should call for help in the case of a drug overdose.
According to the 911/Good Samaritan provision in Steve’s Law, Minnesota’s drug overdose prevention law that passed earlier this year, a person acting in good faith who seeks medical assistance for someone who is experiencing a drug-related overdose may not be charged or prosecuted for the possession, sharing, or use of a controlled substance, or possession of drug paraphernalia if that person is the first person to seek assistance, provides a name and contact information, remains on the scene until assistance arrives, and cooperates with authorities. The person experiencing the overdose is also immune.

On November 24, 2014 Xcel Energy began preparations for boring a gas line underneath the Cannon River. As part of those preparations, Xcel coordinated lane closures with MnDOT since that portion of Northfield’s Second Street is also MN TH 19. Xcel estimates that their work will take approximately 3 weeks. There will be additional work after that time; however, it is anticipated that the bridge will be reopened. There may be other shorter closures in early 2015 as an existing gas main is removed from the bridge structure.
