Emergency Management

Farm Emergency Plan - Fillable (002)-1

farm Emergency plan

The Farm Emergency Plan template lets farmers, producers and landowners create their own emergency plan to keep their family members, employees, contractors or visitors safe in the case of an emergency or disaster situation. The template contains many references to livestock, but can be adapted for any farming operation to mitigate the hazards to buildings, people or commodities. County Emergency Management staff are available to guide or assist in completing the plan if needed. This plan is personal to each farm operation, so producers can make it fit their own needs.
