Emergency Management Agencies
When natural disaster strikes, whether it's a tornado, flood, fire or blizzard, the Governor of Nebraska sends the National Guard into action. These Citizen Soldiers become local heroes; saving lives, protecting property, and helping communities get back on their feet.
The National Guard plays an important role in the defense of American interests around the world. The Nebraska National Guard receives the same training as the United States Army. Overnight, Nebraska Guard members can be in their uniforms on the way to protect our nation as a part of our Military's Total Force.
