On Monday, February 23rd, 2015 the 4th Biennial Stars of Life Celebration was held at the Ramada Inn of Bismarck, ND. This evening was about celebrating and recognizing accomplishments in Emergency Medical Services. The Stars of Life program was established in 2009 to assure that the individuals who have a strong commitment and enthusiasm in EMS in ND are recognized. These Stars symbolize the true spirit of volunteerism and often go above their call of duty to serve. The sacrifices they make in their community assists in building a strong and more viable EMS system.

One of the recipients of this year’s Star of Life was from Mohall. This person is well loved and respected on the ambulance service, and she truly goes the extra mile to ensure that not only the patient, but the crew, are confident, comfortable, and well cared for. She defines EMS at its best!

Michele Helming is this year’s Star of Life from the Mohall Ambulance Service with substations in Tolley, Lansford, and Sherwood. Michele has been a valuable asset to the service since joining in September 2005. She became a First Responder and then an Emergency Medical Technician in March, 2007. Michele serves as Secretary on the Board of Directors for Mohall Ambulance Service as well as the Secretary on the Local Emergency Planning Committee for Renville County. She is a member of the Area Safe Communities Coalition and has participated in the organization of the Area Safe Communities Coalition New Year’s Eve, alcohol free, parent and youth event.

As a dedicated and dependable member of the ambulance service, Michele also serves on the Mohall EMS Assistance Fund Committee and is active in recruiting new members to the service. She also served on the committee that was working to join the Sherwood Ambulance Service with Mohall Ambulance Service as a substation.

Michele and her husband, Rick, have three children - Jessica, Kalli, and Jarrid, and three grandchildren. Michele operates a daycare in her home in Mohall.

Congratulations to Michele. The ambulance services appreciate all that you do for the services.
