Nebraska DHHS Emergency Preparedness
Ready to Respond
During an emergency, lives depend on how quickly we are able to respond with organized, effective help. Coordinating with local, state and federal resources is critical to providing effective responses to bioterorrism and other public health emergencies. It’s that spirit of cooperation that has made Nebraska a model for others to follow.
In Nebraska, we’ve made huge strides in planning and strengthening our emergency response. Specifically, at the Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS) we’re working to strengthen our public health system and protect people against future threats.
The federal government provides financial aid to the states through grant funds to assist with bioterrorism and emergency response planning at the state and local levels.
