The purpose of a Farm Emergency Plan is to help agricultural operations proactively prepare for management of unexpected hazardous situations. A thorough and current Farm Emergency Plan can help minimize first responder response times and assist with site location accuracy during an emergency. Farm Emergency Plans should be utilized as well communicated training tools for operational employees, family members, etc. If done properly, a Farm Emergency Plan could be one of the most effective and invaluable tools to have around.
