Law enforcement and EMS were dispatched to a medical assistance call this afternoon east of Hesston. Two acquaintances called 911 after finding two men unresponsive in a home in the 8000 block of North West Road.

Emergency responders found a man in his 40s dead inside the home. His name has not been released pending notification of family.

Emergency responders performed life-saving measures on scene for a man in his 50s. He was taken to an area hospital in critical condition. He is a resident of the home.

This incident remains under investigation. Foul play is not immediately suspected.

Deputies Billinger and Westfall visited Hesston College today to provide fingerprinting services for nursing students. We recently did the same for Bethel College, too. We're always happy to do our small part in helping these students advance their careers!

FYI, we do offer fingerprinting services to Harvey County residents at the Detention Center if you ever need it for work.Deputies Billinger and Westfall visited Hesston College today to provide fingerprinting services for nursing students.

🐢🌊Every dog has its day at East Park. We're excited to debut our new Pet Swim Park at East, providing a dedicated area for our local hot dogs to cool off during the dog days of summer.

The Pet Swim Park includes a fenced-in play area with a few attractions for doggos to examine and explore, and has direct access for splashing around in the lake. There are also seating areas where pet owners can relax while observing.

Pets are welcome to be off leash while in this designated area. However, pets must be supervised by an owner or handler while they are inside the Pet Swim Park. Please help us keep this attraction clean for other pets and pet owners by cleaning up waste and other trash during your visit. You can find a full list of rules for the Pet Swim Park on our website: www.harveycounty.com/images/parks/East%20Park%20pet%20swim%20area%20rules.pdf

The Pet Swim Park is located in the Willow Bend area of East Park. Please come check it out as the weather warms up!

U.S. Highway 50 is closed in both directions between Woodberry and Burmac roads due to power lines that fell in the roadway. That is just north of Burrton.

Traffic on U.S. 50 will be diverted at the road closures while personnel work to repair the lines. There are also some power outages in the area due to the downed lines. Please consider finding an alternate route if you plan to travel tonight.
