County hires new emergency services director
FB DCN Government County
After a restructuring of the department earlier this year, Dawson County Manager David Headley has announced that a new emergency services director has been hired. Franklin “Danny” Thompson, a 28-year public service veteran, was recently hired to replace Lanier Swafford, who formerly held the joint role of fire chief and emergency services director. The restructuring divided the role and Swafford retained the title of fire chief.
