Special Events

Every year, the Lincoln- Lancaster Emergency Management Agency (LLCEMA) participates in the Uncle Sam Jam celebrating the Independence Day holiday. Uncle Sam Jam is a public, family-friendly event sponsored by the City of Lincoln. 

For the Uncle Sam Jam, LLCEMA sets up a Mobile Operation Center (MOC) in Oak Lake Park to coordinate with other city agencies at the event. The coordination activities include:

  1. Providing weather updates to the organizers and event personnel 
  2. Maintaining situational awareness and providing updates as needed
  3. Coordinating with security, first responders and other event personnel
  4. Working with the American Red Cross and other volunteers to promote hydration & wellness
  5. Providing a safe haven for lost children until they are reunited with their parents 
  6. Distribution of general safety information to the public
  7. Deployment of two light towers in the park 

   LLCEMA’s mission goals are Planning, Coordination, Prevention Preparedness, Mitigation and Response
