WINONA, Minn. (WKBT) - Winona County is looking for a full-time County Emergency Management Coordinator.

The Winona County Board unanimously voted in favor of hiring a full-time management coordinator earlier this week.

The county had a part-time coordinator in the past, but decided part-time hours were not enough to cover the needs of the position.

County leaders hope to begin accepting applications soon and say it could take a couple months to find the right person.

"In the event of an emergency, we need this position. We need to be doing training. We wanted to make sure that we weren't dropping the ball at the county board level, and make sure that this position was filled," said County Commissioner Steve Jacob.

The coordinator will be responsible for organizing and communicating with all levels of emergency management in Winona county.

They will also be in charge of training coordination.
