Troopers respond to Ninilchik individual in need of help

Alaska State Troopers were summoned to the Deep Creek Farm Road area of Ninilchik on Friday morning, providing assistance to “an individual that needed our help,” said spokeswoman Megan Peters. Comments posted on Facebook indicated residents in the Deep Creek Farm Road area had been told to stay indoors and keep their doors locked. Other comments noted that the road had been closed. “The neighborhood wasn’t shut down and the location where it occurred there were no close neighbors,” said Peters. “No one was really affected and no one was told to stay in their homes.” Responding troopers wore tactical gear, which Peters said is worn “if they think it might benefit them. … It wasn’t a SERT (Strategic Emergency Reaction Team) callout.” Troopers made contact with the individual in question and transported that individual to Central Peninsula Hospital. “An ambulance was standing by just in case, but it was not used,” said Peters. “It’s nothing we can really report on. No was arrested. … It was an isolated incident and it’s been taken care of.” McKibben Jackinsky can be reached at mckibben.jackinsky@homernews.com.
