Edmonson County Emergency Management Director Terry "Moose" Massey was recognized by the The Kentucky Emergency Management Association (KEMA) for a statewide award, along with 10 other current and former officials Thursday, Sept. 24th during a ceremony in Lexington. The honors highlight achievements of personal and statewide significance.
Massey received the award for "Most Improved Program."
“Recipients this year were selected from peer nominations from across our state,” said KEMA President Drew Chandler. “These individuals stood out for their continuous contributions to make Kentucky a safer place.”
The Certified Kentucky Emergency Manager (CKEM) credential was conferred upon Greg Bucker of Campbell County and Sean Fay of Mercer County. The certification is a mechanism to validate an individual’s knowledge, skills, abilities, and experience to effectively manage a comprehensive emergency management program.
“We are particularly proud of the growing number of certified members and those working toward the qualification requirements,” Chandler continued. “They represent the best in our profession.”
Massey has served in local emergency services in various forms for the past 37 years. He was named Edmonson County's Emergency Management Director in 2018. He was recognized for the award on the second anniversary of being named county director.
