LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) - Nebraskans who helped their communities prepare for and respond to natural disasters were recognized for their work at the Capitol.

Gov. Dave Heineman on Tuesday presented volunteers and community groups with this year’s “Be Prepared” awards.

The awards program is in its seventh year. It’s sponsored by the Nebraska Emergency Management Agency and the University of Nebraska Public Policy Center.

This year’s recipients included the Beaver Crossing and Cordova Fire Departments, which responded to tornadoes that struck earlier this year, and Wayne County’s Emergency Manager, who worked in the aftermath of several devastating tornadoes.
