Governor Matt Mead announced today that Guy Cameron will be the next Director of the Wyoming Office of Homeland Security. Cameron is a longtime firefighter from Cheyenne. He was Fire Chief from 2007 to 2010.

“Guy has an impressive record of protecting the public and I look forward to working with him as we continue to provide for the safety of Wyoming people,” Governor Mead said.

Cameron has been in fire protection for 32 years and before that he worked with the Wyoming Highway Patrol. He retired from the Cheyenne Fire Department in 2010.

Cameron said this appointment is a great responsibility, but he is honored for the opportunity, “I am eager to work with local communities, tribal leaders, emergency responders and the private sector all across our state planning for all hazard events.”

"The business of homeland security is about building partnerships, planning and preparing and being ready for the uncertain,” Cameron added.

Deputy Director of Homeland Security Larry Majerus (MUH jair us) filled in as interim Director after Joe Moore retired in January.

The mission of the Wyoming Office of Homeland Security (WOHS) is to prepare, train, prevent, respond to, and recover from natural/man-made crisis or disasters to include terrorist threats and attacks. The office provides assistance and support to statewide responder agencies as they either experience or respond to these events.
