Governor and First Lady Asking for Flood Hero Nominations

Governor Pete Ricketts and First Lady Susanne Shore are asking Nebraskans to submit their nominations for Nebraska’s flood heroes prior to October 1, 2019 by visiting

“The blizzards and floods this spring, and repeated rounds of flooding over the summer, adversely impacted thousands of Nebraskans,” said Gov. Ricketts. “But the severe weather didn’t sink us. We rallied together as a state and rose above it. Susanne and I want to acknowledge the selfless Nebraskans who stepped in to help their neighbors during the disaster. We encourage you to share the story of their heroism with us.”

Throughout the spring and summer, first responders, firefighters, police officers, state troopers, the Nebraska National Guard, the Nebraska Department of Transportation, and thousands of private citizens have worked tirelessly to ensure public safety, protect property, and provide relief to flood victims

Nominations are being accepted until the October 1st deadline.
