Nebraska State Electrical Division Announces New Website

LINCOLN, Neb.--()--The Nebraska State Electrical Division has launched an updated, modern and comprehensive website where users can easily find information they need to remain in good standing.

The Nebraska State Electrical Division (NSED) was established by the Legislature in 1969 within the State Fire Marshal’s office. The division included a five-member board appointed by the Governor, with the consent of the Legislature. In 1975, the Nebraska State Electrical Act was created providing laws regarding electrical licensing and inspections in the state. To assure all regulatory information is available to all who need it, the new website was redesigned, and content has been mapped to provide efficiency. An interactive county map has been included for users to find contact information for the electrical inspector in each county. At the top of the priorities and top of the page is a search box which allows the users to input what they seek and choose from a list of content containing key words. The navigation is well organized and categorized to expedite each user’s experience.

“We wanted to centralize the forms and applications to include all the licensing and inspection options in addition to making the convenient online services clearly accessible,” stated Mike Bouwens, Chief Electrical Inspector, Nebraska Electrical Division. “It is also important to us that the information about continuing education is easy to find so people can stay up to date or expand their skills. Working with Nebraska Interactive to reorganize the content and train our staff to edit the site was extremely valuable. We had a terrific experience.”

With the website built in Drupal, the NSED now has the ability to post code classes and exams, as well as update agency content with relevant news.

“We are excited to help the NSED and empower them to edit and control their own website content. Collaborating with government agencies is what we do best,” said Brent Hoffman, General Manager of Nebraska Interactive. “We’re happy to help.”
