The Farm Family Emergency Response Program by Penn State University is developing and delivering programs to the agricultural community that will 1) help those individuals that are first to arrive on the scene of a farm emergency, 2) help participants understand which actions may lead to better outcomes for someone that has been injured on the farm, 3) teach participants important considerations to include when calling for help, and 4) discuss activities that can be done on the farm to either limit the likelihood of having a specific farm injury emergency or at least prepare for better managing a farm injury emergency.
