ABC 17 News


Boone County leaders created a new public safety role in the county, according to a news release.

In November, the Boone County Commission created the new position, director of the emergency communications center.

Leaders said the position merges two former leadership positions, the director of Boone County joint communications and director of emergency management.

The changes come months after the unexpected death of Tom Hurley, who was the director of emergency management.

Chad Martin has been serving as the director of joint communications and as the interim director of emergency management.

Leaders chose Martin to fill the newly created role, according to the release.

Officials said Martin has over 20 years of experience working in county government and 29 years of EMS, fire and law enforcement experience in Boone County.
