WEBINAR: Safe and Healthy Recovery After Farm Floods

Date: Wednesday, August 30, 2017
Time: 1:00pm - 2:00pm EDT
Cost: free and open to the public

More information at http://bit.do/170829GF

Disaster recovery can be as dangerous as the disaster itself, especially if no disaster preparedness plan was implemented. This is especially true on farms and ranches where inherent farm hazards such as machinery and equipment, livestock, and agriculture chemicals are displaced and co-mingle, putting all emergency response personnel, farm workers and family members in danger. Floods can heighten the risk of health threats such as mold, tetanus bacteria, contaminated well water, heat illness and high stress. This presentation will highlight basic precautions to prevent possible diseases and injuries during and after flooding.

Organized by the AgriSafe Network

By Ricky Telg
