Madison County Emergency Management Director Tom Cisco has resigned and his last day will be Friday, June 5. Cisco has been the Emergency Management Director for over five years and he is proud of what the county has accomplished, including building better relationships with first responders and adding new emergency management resources to the county. However, Cisco is especially proud of the county becoming the 12th county in the nation to receive Emergency Management Accreditation Program (EMAP) accreditation. EMAP is the voluntary standards, assessment and accreditation process for disaster preparedness programs throughout the country. “The EMAP accreditation is a very good thing for the county,” said Cisco. “I think that who ever comes into the director position needs to carry that on. Not only is this county a nationally recognized county for Emergency Management, it is an example of how Emergency Management should be.” He will be moving to Volusia County to become the Operations Manager. The plan is at the retirement of the current director he will move into that position. “I’ve been honored and blessed to come to this county and I think we did a lot in the last five years,” said Cisco. “I will miss the county but look forward to moving on to a little more active Emergency Management county.” He also admits that there will be times that he will miss the quietness of Madison County and the people. “I want to thank everyone in the county for welcoming me,” said Cisco. “They have been really good to me and my wife.”
