A tense meeting over reduced emergency services in Ninilchik was cut short Thursday night after a man collapsed, calling emergency responders into action. “A man just collapsed in the back of the building,” Zoe Dixon, a Ninilchik resident, said in a Facebook Live stream of the incident. Responders then rush to the back of the room and the feed is turned off. Citing privacy concerns Ninilchik Emergency Services would not confirm the condition of the man who collapsed during the meeting -- only that he was transported in an ambulance. They did not specify where he was taken. This incident happened three hours into a tense town hall meeting. Ninilchik residents organized the meeting after news of the termination of Fire Chief David Bear and Assistant Chief Grace Huhndorf. They were the only NES responders certified to perform advanced life saving measures.
