The Planning Section supports the emergency management and homeland security activities administered by the Nebraska Emergency Management Agency (NEMA). The planning section is responsible for maintaining the agency planning functions at both the state and local levels. Plans are established and maintained to meet the potential hazards facing Nebraska.
At the direction of the Governor and in support of the Revised Reissued Statutes of Nebraska 81-829.41, the Planning Section must establish and maintain a current State Emergency Operations Plan (SEOP). The section also provides the professional and technical services needed to support local emergency managers in maintaining a Local Emergency Operations Plan (LEOP) for each county within the state. It is the responsibility of the county to maintain and revise the LEOP so it remains current and compliant to all laws and regulations.
