The Nebraska State Emergency Communications Committee (NE-SECC) is responsible for updating and maintaining the State EAS Plan.



Emergency Alert System (EAS) and the updates to the newly approved Nebraska State EAS Plan (2018)
Presented by Rod Zeigler, Chair, Nebraska SECC

The Emergency Alert System (EAS) in Nebraska now operates under the 2018 State Plan that gained final approval from the Nebraska Public Safety Communications Committee on March 8th, 2018. This plan can be found at the link below.

This plan is the draft plan that was approved by the Public Safety and Homeland Security division of the Federal Communications Commission on November 29th, 2017 and the Nebraska State Emergency Communications Committee on Dec. 13th, 2017. We anticipate that this same plan, with minor modifications to clarify some points, will be available in the near future. When this happens, it will be the plan that you find at the link below.

NOAA Weather Radio All Hazards Station near Superior Is Back on the Air
NOAA Weather Radio All Hazards Station WNG-578 is back on the air and has returned to normal operations. The station broadcasts on a frequency of 162.525 MHz.
Station WNG-78 had been off the air for about six weeks due to cable and connector issues from the transmitter to the antenna. An antenna climbing crew fixed the problems and the station returned to service on Thursday, August 9. Since the repair, the signal has been strong and appears to be working normally.
Thank you to everyone for your patience during the repair period. We hope these repairs will provide several years of reliable service.
