Emergency Contacts

** Please note that because any terrorist act is a criminal activity, the local police department needs to be notified first of any terrorist threats or incidents in regards to food. The Virginia Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services stands ready to assist local, state, and federal authorities should a terrorist threat or event affecting food occur.

Should you have questions or concerns about the above protocol, you may contact the VDACS Food Safety and Security Program at 804.786.2035.
