COVID-19

The South Heartland District Health Department area (Webster, Nuckolls, Clay, and Adams Counties in Nebraska) has reported at least 6 positive cases of COVID-19, 3 of which are believed to be community spread. This means that Webster County is under a directed health measure until at least May 12th. A directed health measure means restaurants and bars can only do takeout, curbside or delivery and that there is now an enforceable order limiting gatherings to 10 people or less. As of 6:30pm on Wednesday, April 1st Nebraska has 214 cases and 5 deaths. Kansas has 482 cases and 10 deaths. Kansas is also under a stay at home directive while 41 counties in Nebraska (including Webster) are under a directed health measure. Travel to Red Cloud for anything other than work is not recommended at this time. We will update this page daily.

Due to heightened concerns surrounding COVID-19, the City of Red Cloud is taking precautions to best protect the health, safety, and welfare of the community. Effective immediately, the City Hall and the Community Center will be closed through at least April 7th.

Red Cloud Volunteer Fire Department

Red Cloud Volunteer Fire Department

Red Cloud is fortunate to have a volunteer fire department to serve the city and the surrounding countryside. There are twenty-five volunteer fire fighters on the Red Cloud Fire Department.  The fire district extends 8 miles north, 6 miles south, 5 miles east, and 8 miles west of Red Cloud for a total of 182 sq. miles.  Several members of the department attend fire school each year to improve their skills and knowledge to better serve and protect the community.

Members of the fire department hold meetings on the first Thursday of each month.  In addition to their community service, the Firemen host thier annual Soup and Hamburger Feed in March and prepare and serve the popular beef barbeque at the annual Street Car Days celebration.
