LDAF is authorized by the Louisiana Emergency Operation Plan to administer two of the plan’s 15 Emergency Support Functions. These functions are ESF-4 (firefighting) and ESF-11 (agriculture/animals). LDAF Emergency Programs manages the business of these vital functions.

LDAF is prepared to respond to incidents and disasters that threaten agriculture, the safety of the food supply, and the public health.
