Patrick McMacken, Emergency Management Coordinator for the City of Irving, was formally recognized by the Dallas County Commissioners Court after he announced his retirement following nearly 15 years of service to the City and the surrounding area.
McMacken, a qualified FEMA instructor, assisted with events such as Super Bowl 45 and helped to handle public shelter operations following Hurricanes Katrina, Rita, Ike and Gustav. He was also responsible for coordinating with emergency responders on a regular basis.
Judge Jenkins spoke of the value of teamwork and diligence exhibited by McMacken. “He is well respected among his colleagues, partners, elected officials and the public,” he said.
