Louisiana Wildlife and Fisheries Agents Provide Vital Support to Essential Workers Stranded in Winter Weather Crisis

by BIZ Magazine

As freezing weather blankets the northern part of Louisiana, the Louisiana Department of Wildlife and Fisheries (LDWF) Enforcement Division has stepped up to aid essential workers trapped by hazardous driving conditions.

Monday, LDWF agents initiated a crucial effort to transport essential workers to and from their workplaces. The move is in response to the deteriorating weather conditions that have left individuals stranded and struggling to commute safely.

Presently, LDWF agents are actively engaged in transporting essential workers to and from the Northwest Louisiana Veterans Home in Bossier Parish. The department foresees an increasing demand for this essential service as the winter weather crisis intensifies across more areas, and additional veteran homes and local hospitals may require assistance.

Colonel Rachel Zechenelly, the head of the LDWF Enforcement Division, affirmed the department’s commitment to providing assistance during these challenging conditions. “We are more than happy to provide this service for our essential workers and will continue until it is no longer needed,” stated Col. Zechenelly. “We have the equipment and experience for these bad driving conditions.”

This proactive initiative underscores the dedication of LDWF agents, who are going above and beyond their usual duties to leverage resources and expertise, ensuring essential workers can fulfill their responsibilities despite the severe winter weather. The LDWF Enforcement Division’s swift and responsive approach reflects their commitment to community well-being and safety during unforeseen weather crises.
