Emergency Services

The City of Alma, Nebraska partners with the Harlan County Sheriff's Department and the Alma Rural Fire Protection District for emergency services. These fine groups are prepared 24/7 to preserve life and minimize damage, respond to hazards or disaster events by providing the necessary assistance and emergency support functions as well as establish a recovery system that will return the community to its normal state of affairs.

Throughout the year, they engage in community awareness and prevention programs to help the community avoid, detect, and report emergencies effectively.
