WILMINGTON — Clinton County Emergency Management Agency (EMA) has made two new additions to the EMA family.

Nicholas Robinson joins EMA with 10 years of hazardous materials experience as Logistics Technician to oversee the Local Emergency Planning Commission response trailer supporting 10 fire districts in the event of a hazardous materials release.

In addition, Robinson will oversee maintenance and deployment of portable light towers, trailers, communications equipment, and a dedicated response vehicle.

He also serves the state of Ohio as the Non-Commissioned Officer for Training to the Ohio Military Reserve (Middletown), and is a volunteers captain with the Chester Township Fire Department, since 2009.

He is a graduate of Clinton-Massie’s Class of 2004.

Robinson currently is deployed by the state of Ohio in support of recovery from the recent Memorial Day tornadoes.

Misty Dixon brings 16 years of business and medical transcription experience to manage EMA office operations.

Mrs. Dixon graduated cum laude in 2002 from Wilmington College, with a degree in business administration, and holds an honors certificate in medical transcription.

She grew up showing horses in the Clinton County 4-H program for 10 years.

Dixon is deeply involved with women’s events and children’s AWANA ministry for the Wilmington Bible Baptist Church. She is married to Pastor Josh Dixon and has three children.

Gregory Hefner, Marion Township trustee and EMA Executive Committee board member, said, “I’m excited about the possibilities and qualities moving forward.

Michael Boyle, chairman of the EMA Executive Committee, said, “I’m confident that we got the best of the best candidates in these two.”

The director of the Clinton County EMA is Thomas Breckel.
