Every year, McKenzie County honors first responders who have exemplified excellence in their service to the community. And while this year’s special recognition didn’t include a celebratory award dinner due to COVID-19, on Tuesday, Sept. 15, Tana Hinricksen and Dave Uhlich were recognized on their selection by the McKenzie County commissioners.
“They’re both wonderful people and I don’t think a better choice could’ve been made this year,” says Karolin Jappe, McKenzie County Emergency manager. “In this county, we add more and more to their job description all the time. Yet, their pay doesn’t increase.”
