Macomb, IL – A former McDonough County Deputy Sheriff will serve as interim Emergency Services and Disaster Agency director. County Board Chairman Bob Harwick says Dave Nissen has the background to oversee the agency. Nissen is an EMT and a member of the multi-county medical emergency response team as well as a ham radio operator. Harwick says the county is checking with state-level emergency management staffers to determine what training Nissen will need to get. The county plans to advertise the position to select a permanent director.
