The Nebraska State Emergency Communications Committee (NE-SECC) is responsible for updating and maintaining the State EAS Plan.
What is the SECC?
The SECC writes and maintains the official Nebraska State Emergency Alert System (EAS) plan for Broadcast Stations and Cable Systems. The Federal Communications Rules and Regulations Section 47 Part 11 calls for each state to appoint a State Emergency Communications Committees (SECC).
The SECC has responsibility to help design and maintain a functional state EAS plan for the state of Nebraska. Writing the plan requires research and leadership so it is an effective tool to warn residents in case of disasters and other emergencies.
The Nebraska SECC is made up of at least seven members working in Broadcast and Cable industries, as well as Emergency Operations and National Weather Service. There is no funding provided for the SECC. Individuals, companies and Government agencies join together to plan for the best way to deliver Emergency messages to the public.
