Frankfort, KY: The Kentucky Office of Homeland Security announced today the addition of Todd McCoy of Burkesville, KY to serve as the office’s new Preparedness Integration Director. In this capacity, McCoy will assist in the assimilation of other state agencies into Kentucky’s overall homeland security strategy. McCoy, who served until just recently as the State Bio-Terrorism Coordinator for the Department for Public Health (DPH), has also served in senior level positions within the Environmental and Public Protection Cabinet (EPPC). Todd McCoy has also served on the state Homeland Security Working Group.

“Governor Fletcher has charged our office with the responsibility to coordinate the homeland security functions of agencies throughout state government, and Todd has proven himself uniquely qualified to serve in this role,” said Keith Hall, Kentucky’s Director of Homeland Security.

As Preparedness Integration Director, McCoy will work to incorporate various disparate federal, state and local agencies into the state’s homeland security strategy. These initiatives include assisting in the implementation of the National Incident Management System (NIMS), coordination of the state’s 14 Hazardous Materials (HazMat) Teams, and integration of all the state’s preparedness resources to further the state’s homeland security strategy.

Todd McCoy most recently served in the Preparedness Branch of the Department for Public Health as the state’s bio-terrorism coordinator. Prior to that, McCoy worked to turn environmental liabilities into economic opportunities by running the state’s recycling programs. McCoy also served the state assessing and certifying wastewater and drinking water facilities throughout Kentucky. Additionally, Todd McCoy is a graduate of Kentucky State University’s Leadership College.
