Why Kansas Needs Us


Emergency Support Functions (ESF) is the grouping of governmental and certain private sector capabilities into an organizational structure to provide support, resources, program implementation, and services that are most likely needed to save lives, protect property and the environment, restore essential services and critical infrastructure, and help victims and communities return to normal following domestic incidents. There are 15 groupings.

The Kansas State Animal Response Team works within ESF6 which is the Department for Children and Families (DCF).
