Food and Agriculture Security

The KDA Emergency Management Coordinator works with programs to ensure the security and protection and the food and agriculture sector in Kansas.  Generally, these activities fall into three areas: Animal Health, Plant Health and Food Safety.  Several programs overlap, for example Dairy is concerned with animal health and food safety.  Meat and poultry inspection is similar.  The goal is to eliminate the traditional silos and prepare the sector as a whole.  Planning, training, and exercise activities are conducted in all of the areas and the Department has established an inter-program/division Incident Response Team that would respond to any event requiring a response.
