Special Events

Each year the Omaha Metro is home to some special events where public participation is maximized.  Some of these events are indoor events and some are outdoor events.  Each type of event involves different risks depending on the venue, type, weather, access, and promotion that accompanies the event.  Some events are national and international in nature and they are often televised and attended by high profile individuals and numerous fans.

The Douglas County Emergency Management Agency (DCEMA) is tasked with planning and providing an on-scene presence to orchestrate, coordinate and facilitate a collaborative approach to providing adequate security at the event as well as to have systems and processes in place for a quick and immediate response, should it be needed.

Additionally, DCEMA assists in arranging for volunteers and providing public information including weather updates to organizers and public safety personnel.
