"The county created an Office of Emergency Management and named Randy Likens to head it."
(However, trying to find contact information for Randy Likens, through various Franklin County websites-including Franklin County government listings- is like trying to find a needle in a haystack. He is listed alomst nowhere-including Not here on the Local/Area Links.
SO...to save you the search time it took me...here is his email address, should you like to email him questions about emergency management or suggest ways he can earn his salary>rlikens@franklincountync.us
I am emailing him with a suggestion...and will post the suggestion and outcome soon.
