Let us help you create and practice an emergency plan so your family will know what to do in a crisis. There's also a FREE Emergency App available.

Emergency Response

A public health emergency could be anything from a pandemic or disease outbreak, to an act of terrorism, or a natural disaster like a flood, wildfire, or tornado.

The North Central District Health Department’s (NCDHD) Emergency Response program plays a key role in preparing our communities for disasters, responding when emergencies occur, and lending support through the recovery process. We work with local government, emergency management, hospitals, nursing facilities, and other private agencies to help the region prepare and respond to all types of disasters.

NCDHD accomplishes emergency preparedness by planning, developing, implementing, and coordinating plans and exercises. We work to create disaster plans specific to responding to a public health disaster. In a disaster, NCDHD coordinates the health-related services and can also help in providing shelter to those affected by a disaster.

NCDHD also works closely with Nebraska’s Rural Region One Medical Response System (RROMRS). RROMRS is a Medical Response System (MRS) region located in North Central and Northeast Nebraska. The MRS was created to further improve the quality of the State of Nebraska’s ability to respond to public health situations that involve large numbers of people and/or a disruption of services.

For upcoming preparedness events and exercises, check out the NCDHD calendar.
