PENDER COUNTY, NC (WECT) - Pender County will soon have a new emergency management director.

The county will narrow down the list of nearly 40 applicants over the next several weeks.

Former director Eddie King left the county earlier this year after almost seven years of service.  King said it was a personal decision and that it is time to move on.

Bladen County also recently announced Bradely Kinlaw would take over as Fire Marshal and Director of Emergency Services.  Jeanene Green is the new Director of Emergency Medical Services.
