Default New Tippecanoe County Emergency Management Director Named

From WLFI and Lafayette Courier & Journal...

Former Tippecanoe County sheriff William "Smokey" Anderson is taking over as the new director of Tippecanoe County's Emergency Management Agency.

He received unanimous support this morning from the county commissioners, who were forwarded three names by the TEMA advisory board panel that met with applicants on Monday.

Anderson said he has "a lot of learning to do" in the new job, but he also brings a diverse background in emergency response training. In addition to the three decades he spent with the county sheriff's department, Anderson has served as a volunteer firefighter and EMT.

He was elected for one term as sheriff, stepping down in 2006 but staying with the department as a civilian employee serving eviction notices and other papers.

Commissioner Tom Murtaugh said Anderson is well respected in the community. "He will be a great asset in this role," he said.

Garry Smith, chairman of the TEMA advisory board, said Anderson will have to continue the good work done by outgoing director Mark Kirby. He said he hopes Anderson will put an emphasis on the district goals and functions, since Tippecanoe County plays a major role as part of Indiana Homeland Security's District 4 - which includes nine counties.

Interesting still seeing communities hire emergency managers with zero experience or training in emergency management...
