The purpose of the Nebraska State Homeland Security Strategy (NSHSS) is to identify a strategic direction for enhancing the State of Nebraska?s capability and capacity to detect, prevent against, protect against, respond to, and recover from threats or incidents of terrorism, natural disasters, major emergencies, and incidents of national significance. This is an exceedingly complex mission that requires coordination, cooperation and focused effort from the entire State’s citizens, local, tribal, state, and federal government, as well as the private and non-profit sectors.
This document establishes the Nebraska Emergency Management Agency’s (NEMA) National Incident Management System (NIMS) Implementation Plan to ensure the State of Nebraska complies with HSPD-5, Management of Domestic Incidents. HSPD-5 requires all State agencies to adopt the NIMS and use it in their individual domestic incident management and emergency prevention, preparedness, response, recovery, and mitigation activities in support of all actions to assist State or local entities. This plan also illustrates the intended methods of incorporation of NIMS into NEMA’s plans, procedures, policies and training programs.
