The Nebraska Emergency Management Agency's mobile operations center and a field team are located in Beaver Crossing, assisting city and county officials with the response there. The focus continues to be on debris management.

Volunteers are still needed in Beaver Crossing, however, the process for volunteering has changed. Volunteers should call the Seward County Emergency Management Agency office at (402) 643-4722. (Please do not call the Centennial School in Utica.) Volunteers can also report directly to the Fire Hall in Beaver Crossing. The fire hall is on the Southeast corner of Dimery and West Streets in the middle of town. At the fire hall, volunteers will be checked in and receive a badge. Volunteers will then be directed to locations where help is needed.

A crisis care chaplaincy has been set up at the town hall on the Northeast corner of Dimery and West streets in Beaver Crossing. It will be open 8 a.m. to 8 p .m. daily until further notice. Respite care for residents and a children’s respite area have been set up at the town hall. Any resident and their children, who want to talk or simply need to relax, are welcome. Parents must be with their children.

Beaver Crossing residents with any unmet emergency needs are asked to come to the fire hall and report those needs.

Anyone wishing to donate please call Monica at (402)-641-3616. Clothing is not on the list of needs, but all others items are needed.

Army National Guard Soldiers from the 92nd Troop Command continue on state active duty, assisting local emergency management officials in providing public safety support in the areas affected by the Sunday’s storms. The mission is expected to last until Tuesday, May 20.

On Sunday morning at 10 a.m., a community-wide church service will be held at the Methodist Church in Beaver Crossing.
