Louisiana Fuel Team and Playbook

The Louisiana Fuel Team was developed in an effort to supplement the state's emergency response to the public's need for fuel during times of evacution and/or other emergencies. The group is comprised of public and private sector  volunteers working together to gain greater efficiency in making fuel avaialble prior to, during, and after an emergency such as a hurricane.

The state Department of Natural Resources (DNR) serves as the lead agency to oversee the Fuel Team Playbook, while the Department of Agriculture and Forestry (LDAF) serves as the lead state agency for coordination and optimization of the emergency fuel supply.

The Fuel Team Coordinator is the DNR Assistant Secretary of the Office of Coastal Management or another appointed designee. The private sector Fuel Team members include representatives of the refinery and supplier sectors, supply and terminal sector, retail fuel and tank truck carrier sectors. 

The Louisiana Fuel Team Playbook supplements the State of Louisiana's Emergency Operations Plan.

Hurricane Season runs from June 1st through November 30th.
