North Carolina's Preparedness to Respond to On-Farm Emergencies

Annette G. Greer, William Meggs
2011 North Carolina Medical Journal  
474 North Carolina farm families, emergency services, and fire departments do not always have sufficient training to respond to on-farm emergencies.

We recommend improved emergency response through collaborative education using AgriSafe of North Carolina and Certified Safe Farm North Carolina, two programs geared toward safety training.
