New EMA Director for Montgomery County

Montgomery, Al. (WSFA) -- A new face is leading the Montgomery County Emergency Management Agency.

Former Deputy EMA Director Steve Jones is now the leader of one of the city's most integral departments.

Jones has been in emergency management for the past two years and served in the National Guard.

Montgomery Mayor Bobby Bright says Jones received the highest mark from a recruitment team that surveyed candidates from across the country.

Steve Jones will work directly with the Department of Homeland Security and outline all disaster preparedness for Montgomery County.
