L&T staff report


Seward County Emergency Management Director Greg Standard issued a release stating the Seward County Emergency Operations Center is now operations.

The location of the EOC is 1411 W. 15th Street.

According to the release, “Seward County Emergency Management has organized and staffed our local EOC. This group is comprised of local emergency response teams, local healthcare providers, public healthcare providers, and other local officials who are working to ensure the safety of the residents of Seward County.”

The release also stated that the Emergency Operations team for Seward County is expected to meet daily to monitor the changing COVID-19 situation on a local, state, national, and international level. The monitoring is expected to include twice-daily conference calls with county emergency operations centers from around the state, state departments, and other industry experts. 

“With this information, the Seward County Emergency Operations Center is preparing and planning in the event that someone in Seward County tests positive for the virus,” Standard’s release stated. “To date, we have no confirmed cases of COVID-19 in Seward County.”

Local emergency responders have received training in how to handle calls and how to safely interact with patients during this event, the release stated, and new protocols have been implemented to safeguard both the emergency responders and the patient. These protocols will minimize the potential for transfer of contamination.
