Carlisle has worked with the Houston County EMA for 7 years.
He currently serves as the operations manager and community coordinator.
Carlisle says besides making the EMA's website more accessible to residents he has outlined his top focus.
"Right now, I'm focusing mainly on the upcoming hurricane season that's coming in starting next month and right now, I'm really getting prepared to go around and start doing the emergency preparedness with a lot of the agencies."
Commissioners went through 19 applicants.
They are set to vote Monday.
