Emergency Preparedness

The Emergency Preparedness program of Sarpy/Cass Health Department is responsible for identifying all risks that could impact the public health of our communities. In addition, we create, maintain, and practice emergency response plans designed specifically to address the potential disasters. Sarpy/Cass Health Department Emergency Preparedness works closely with many local and federal agencies to help insure the continued well-being of the residents should we face a disaster. Community education is essential to our mission. Through presentations, trainings, and the distribution of information we strive to help every resident, and business, understand our local risks and prepare for them appropriately. Please visit our links below to access more information on specific hazards, creating a plan, and resources to help you become prepared for any emergency.
