Emergency Personal Protective Equipment

Under California Department of Food and Agriculture and California Office of Emergency Services instruction concerning the distribution of state supplied personal protective equipment, California Agricultural Commissioner’s Office throughout the state are required to record information, such as, but not limited to; recipient’s name, contact information, permit number, business license, and distribution date. Our office evaluates each request for compliance with the guidance that has been issued; any requester that does not meet the requirements will be notified. This information is being tracked for both state and federal auditing purposes to prevent misappropriations of supplied personal protection equipment.

Our office actively continues to distribute personal protective equipment to the Ag industry who meet the guidance issued by the California Department of Food and Agriculture and the California Office of Emergency Services. You may make a request for N95 masks that are available to pesticide applicators and employees who may be exposed to heavy dust or COVID in an agricultural setting.
