Thompson Leaves Post As County EMA Director

The Fulton County Emergency Management Executive Committee held its first meeting Tuesday, Aug. 14, but did not appoint a new Emergency Management Agency director.

Justin Thompson, former EMA director, transferred back to the county information technology department, leaving the EMA director post vacant.

Doug Shaw, Wauseon mayor, said the committee will probably appoint an interim director at the group’s next meeting, set for 7:30 am, Monday, Aug. 20, at the Fulton County Commissioners chambers.

Members of the executive committee include Todd Grisier, of the Archbold-German Township Fire Department; Jim Wyse, Archbold mayor; John Arquette, Lyons mayor and chief of the Lyons Fire Department; Steve Gustwiller, Dover Township trustee, and Dean Genter, president of the Fulton County Commissioners.

Shaw said during the Tuesday meeting, Grisier was elected president of the committee. Shaw was named vice president.
