Nebraska Emergency Management Agency (NEMA)
NEMA works with local communities to respond to emergencies. Response begins with the citizens, first responders and local officials of a community. When the resources and capabilities of the local government are exhausted, the governor can proclaim a state emergency and sign a declaration. This declaration formalizes the state response and aggregates all the state’s resources. During a disaster response, the State Emergency Operations Center at NEMA opens and the emergency support function coordinators work together to provide the state response to the needs of the affected local jurisdictions. When Nebraska’s resources are exhausted, the state can request a presidential disaster seeking assistance from the federal government.
