Hurricane Florence: Farm flood health threats

Floods can heighten the risk of health threats, such as mold, tetanus bacteria, contaminated well water, heat illness, and high stress. This is especially true on farms and ranches where inherent farm hazards, such as machinery and equipment, livestock, agriculture chemicals that have been displaced, which can put all emergency response personnel, farm workers, and family members at danger.

Join AgriSafe on Thursday, September 20 at 10 a.m. EST as they present a free webinar that will highlight the basic precautions to prevent possible diseases and injuries during and after flooding. Space is limited to the first 200 webinar attendees. Register today for more information.
