The funeral procession for Emmet County Emergency Management Director Terry Reekers drew officials from the area and around the state on Wednesday.

A walk along 170th Street, which was blocked off for the funeral at Grandview Baptist Church was lined with official vehicles from around the state.

The local emergency personnel led the way including Estherville police, Emmet County Sheriff and Armstrong police, as well as fire departments' vehicles from Estherville, Armstrong, Gruver, Ringsted and Wallingford.
