Shawn Strange Awarded Paid State Emergency Manager of the Year

Shawn Strange was hired as Cotton County Emergency Management Director on February 25, 2013. In his four years at the helm, he has taken the county’s program and turned it into one of the top programs in the Southwest area. Strange, working with the Board of County Commissioners, has been able to make the Emergency Management Program self-sufficient by taking the initiative to write grants. He started out with only his payroll in his budget but through his leadership and dedication, the county has been awarded over $200,000.00 in that three year period. These grants have provided portable generators, stand-alone generators, light towers, medical supplies, and at the present time a mobile instant command trailer.
