Center Serves Vital Role in Improving Collaboration Between Emergency Management and Local Education Agencies Around Nebraska
The Nebraska Department of Education (NDE) received a grant to improve their assistance to local education agencies (LEAs) so they can maintain high quality emergency operations plans (EOPs). The PPC is providing research to NDE so they can accomplish this. Part of this research includes a survey of Nebraska emergency managers to gauge their level of engagement with local school districts in order to improve collaboration between emergency management and LEAs, which will hopefully result in high-quality EOPs. The seminars will provide an overview of our survey results and a brainstorming session on how that region can develop a collaborative planning process. Center staff have eight of these seminars scheduled across the state over the next two weeks.
