Doug’s dedication to emergency service began as a volunteer firefighter in 1986. He advanced his love of the service when he became employed by Granville County in the Emergency Medical Services department as an EMT and Lieutenant in charge of the infection control program. In August, 1994 he took his present position with the county as the Emergency Management Coordinator/Fire Marshal. In this position he is responsible for the overall planning, preparedness and response coordination for disasters within the county.

Doug has also been active on a state level throughout his career in Emergency Management. He is a member of the State Emergency Response Team to respond as needed to other areas within the state or nation when Granville County is not affected. Most recently he deployed to New Orleans after Hurricane Katrina as part of a 6-member team from North Carolina to assist the storm-struck area with overhead coordination and establishment of the Emergency Operations Center. He also remains active in the North Carolina Emergency Management Association, of which he was president from 2002 until 2004.
