When the tornado sirens blare, not everyone runs for cover.
It’s a sure bet Doug Finlay, Hardin County deputy emergency management director, will be in the thick of things.
“The biggest part of my role is planning for disasters,” Finlay said.
Part of the planning he does involves coordinating communication between various agencies, such as fire departments, search and rescue teams, and the sheriff’s department. Often it means setting up an emergency operations center at the Emergency Management Services building.
