  5. Kentucky Emergency Management Services’ Approach • Initiated discussions in March 2002 with KY Association of ADD Directors to seek assistance from the area development districts • Regional approach and strengths would overcome outlined dilemma’s • Multiple Funding Sources • Louisville / Lexington areas as stand-alones NADO Training Conference
