Farm/Agricultural Rescue Training

Farm and agricultural rescue training is conducted in cooperation with the PA State University Managing Agricultural Emergencies program.  Penn State’s PAgricultural Rescue Training is designed to help local emergency services develop strategies and procedures to be better prepared to respond to and manage on-farm emergencies. With this accomplished, better care will be provided for the victim. The better the care that is provided, the better the chances of survival.
