Building Readiness Through Partnership

Combining the assets of the private sector with the resources, knowledge, and access of the public sector can create Partnerships that fill those gaps and take the recovery of your business to the next level.


NPP is a 501 (c)(3) established in 2014 for the purpose of engaging Nebraska businesses, critical infrastructure, key resources, and citizens. NPP will build the readiness of private stakeholders in Nebraska to prepare, mitigate, respond, and recover from disasters through advocacy, training, and public partnerships.

A broad spectrum of partners

Local businesses own and operate 85% of assets, which are critical to keeping our communities viable. The public and private sectors are collaborating to be better prepared and respond to the effects of a disaster. A broad spectrum of partners working together strengthens the resilience of all communities in Nebraska.


The Omaha Fire and Police Departments are already collaborating with NPP, County Emergency Management, the Health Department personnel, public utilities, and the U.S. Department of Homeland Security, so that communities are prepared when disasters strike.

The safety and well-being of our citizens is what draws us together. Having established relationships before a disaster strikes will help us to provide a comprehensive, coordinated response.
