Nebraska Specific Information 
 
 
 
Nebraska Public Health is taking action. Here’s what we’re doing.

- Enhancing response plans.   - Evaluating our hospitals’ readiness. If there’s an unplanned Ebola case in Nebraska, we need to recognize it quickly and take immediate action.   - Sharing updated guidance with local health departments, health care providers, hospitals, local and the state lab through our extensive Health Alert Network.   - Monitoring travelers from West Aftica for signs and symptoms of Ebola.   - Activating our Emergency Coordination Center as a central clearing house for Ebola-related information and guidance and to help connect preparedness resources to those who need them statewide.

When it comes to natural disasters and public health emergencies, our goal is to protect Nebraskans.
 
DHHS, the Nebraska Emergency Management Agency, local health departments, hospitals, first responders and other local, state and federal agencies have been partners in preparedness for more than 10 years. Together, we’ve responded to tornadoes, wildfires, flooding, ice storms, H1N1 and foodborne illness outbreaks.
 
Preparedness planning and response never stops and it continues to be a priority. We plan for the worst, hope for the best and stand ready to respond to whatever comes our way. 
 
Please feel free to contact us with your questions or concerns at DHHS.Prepare@nebraska.gov .
 
 
 
Nebraska’s Biocontainment Unit at the Nebraska Medical Center was built with the purpose of providing specialized care to people with potentially deadly and infectious disease. DHHS, Nebraska Medicine and the University of Nebraska Medical Center have been partners in preparedness for more than 10 years. Building the unit was a joint effort and so is the decision to open it. Nebraska Medicine’s team has successfully treated two Ebola patients in the Biocontainment Unit. Now Nebraska Medicine is sharing its expertise and safety protocols and procedures with others nationally and worldwide.
