Safe and Healthy Recovery After a Farm Flood

September 20, 2018 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm CDT

Last updated on July 26th, 2021 at 12:05 pm

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.

By the end of this presentation, attendees will be able to:
· Identify common human health risks faced during a farm flood.
· Discuss prevention tips and injury prevention for common human health risks.
· Identify AgriSafe and external resources to address human health risks during a farm flood.
