Dona Greiner, Emergency Management Director for both Stevens and Big Stone Counties, receiving an award for being Minnesota's Best Emergency Management Director for the past year.

Stevens County Coordinator Rebecca Young also shared with KMRS listeners that the county gets pushback from the State of Minnesota for sharing its Emergency Management director with Big Stone County. This, even though Dona Greiner was honored this year by her colleagues as the Best Emergency Management Director in the State.

Young said the shared position allows for continuity of operations and cost savings. This week, the State’s Homeland Security and Emergency Management Director Joe Kelly confirmed that he will allow Greiner to continue splitting her duties between Stevens and Big Stone Counties with no negative impact on the director.
