Paulding County commissioners have announced the appointment of Edward Bohn as the new director of the county emergency management agency.
Bohn was recommended by the Paulding County EMA director search committee, which was comprised of seven people from several different county agencies.
Bohn replaces Randy Shaffer, who served as EMA director for more than 18 years.
Currently, Bohn is a captain with the Defiance City Fire Department. He starts his new job on Monday part-time and will take over full-time in October.
