Perry Fire Chief Mark Martin was appointed by Gov. John Kasich on Tuesday to serve on a state committee geared toward maintaining and improving emergency services. Martin is to begin serving immediately on the 10-member Statewide Emergency Services Internet Protocol Network Steering Committee. His term is slated to run through Dec. 31, 2020. The chief was asked by the Ohio Township Association to be its representative on the committee, Martin said. “I’m looking forward to it,” the chief said. “Anytime a professional organization asks you to represent them — and be appointed by the governor — you have to be honored.” According to Ohio law, the steering committee’s responsibility is to advise the state on the implementation, operation and maintenance of a statewide emergency services internet protocol network that would support state and local government next-generation 911 and the dispatch of emergency service providers.
