By Allison Olimb of The Press BISMARCK, N.D. -- Earlier this month Walsh County Emergency Manager Brent NelSon was honored at the North Dakota Emergency Management Association and North Dakota Department of Emergency Serv- ices annual conference in Bismarck with the North Dakota Emergency Management As- sociation's Lifetime Achievement Award. "He's done some great work for his coun- ty and all of us across the state," said NDEMA President Kristen Nelsen. Nelsen, who as been an emergency manager for Ramsey County for the past seven years, said that Nelson is one of the veterans in the state that those in the field look to for advice. As a member of the same district and a neighboring county, she said that she was thrilled to be able to surprise Brent with this award. The purpose of the award, which is not giv- en out every year, is to honor and acknowledge the superior achievement of a member's emer- gency management career in North Dakota. Anyone can make a suggestion, but ulti- mately it is an award given out by the NDE- MA Board of Directors. Karen Kempert, Cav- alier County Emergency Management and NDEMA past president threw Brent's hat into the ring, so to speak. "It was a unanimous decision," Nelsen said. The criteria for the award are as follows: Any member of the emergency manage- ment community with at least 20 years of serv- ice directly involved in the emergency man- agement field in North Dakota. A current paid member of the ND Emer- gency Management Association.
