  • Coordinating various exercises to test the plan
  • Educating the public on emergency management
  • Participating in ongoing trainings in Emergency Management
  • Providing assistance to local jurisdictions and county agencies before, during and after disasters strike
  • Updates and revisions to the County Emergency Operations Plan

Nicollet County Emergency Management (NCEM) works closely with local, state and federal officials and cooperatively with neighboring jurisdictions, to better prepare for and respond to incidents ranging from tornadoes to terrorism to pandemics.
