BATON ROUGE-  The Louisiana Department of Wildlife and Fisheries will once again play a lead role in any potential rescue work after Hurricane Isaac.

The department has staged 50 agents and equipment at the Waddell Management area on Flannery Road.  They are part of a fleet of 200 agents and boats being staged across the state. 

Many of the agents have worked on operations during previous hurricanes.  The equipment and personnel will be deployed based on the storm's impact.

We will have a full report on the department's plans tonight on News 2.
