The Nebraska State Emergency Communications Committee (NE-SECC) is responsible for updating and maintaining the State EAS Plan.
The Emergency Alert System (EAS) in Nebraska continues to operate under the drafted and distributed, but not officially approved by the Federal Communications Commission (FCC), 2007 Emergency Alert System Plan with some necessary changes that are listed below.
An updated plan was sent to the FCC for official approval in early 2015. All Nebraska EAS stakeholders will be notified if and when it is approved. Plan distribution and plan start date will follow at some time afterward.
Any changes in the FCC EAS Rules and Regulations that have occurred since the distribution of the 2007 Plan are automatically included in all current and future Nebraska State EAS Plans. These changes are to be implemented by all EAS stakeholders as stated in the FCC Rules and Regulations.
IMPORTANT NOTICE: FCC Emergency Alert System Language Survey
The FCC is assessing the English and multi-lingual alerting capabilities of EAS participants and is requiring state authorities to collect the information requested in the survey link below. Nebraska’s State Emergency Communications Committee (SECC) appreciates your prompt response so we can tabulate the data and meet the FCC’s deadline. Please have your responses completed by June 30, 2017. This short survey should only take up a few minutes of your time, and please direct any questions about the survey to Rod Zeigler at firstname.lastname@example.org. Thank you!
