As 2017 winds-down, Ross County's new Emergency Management Agency Director has reflected on what he's been doing in his first year in the job, during an iHeart Media Communique interview.
Paul Minney says one of the things he's implemented is the use of more social media to alert the county of pending severe weather and other potential disasters.
Minney says he was also involved with a committee assigned to meet with Ross County's townships to urge them to renew a county-wide mutual aid agreement, which had expired. For many years, the townships had such an agreement to work with each other when needed during emergency situations.
Minney says he's happy to say the mutual aid agreement has been updated and put into place.
Other first-year chores for the new Ross EMA Director has included making sure the approximately two-dozen tornado warning sirens in the county are functional.
