Agriculture Rescue Training Slated for October in Marshfield
Wisconsin Ag Connection - 05/18/2022

The National Farm Medicine Center along with its allied partners are planning an Agriculture Rescue Training near Marshfield this fall. The program is being offered October 21-22 and will consist of an evening of live presentations and a full day of hands-on training at various workshops.

"The severity of incidents on farms is such that they may be low frequency, but when they happen, they are high risk," said NFMC Director Casper Bendixsen, Ph.D. "So we want to train our fire and EMS personnel so that they are prepared for the scenarios they're getting into."

The NFMC, in partnership with Pittsville Fire Company, Life Link III, Heiman's Holsteins, Heeg Farms Inc., and Marshfield Clinic Health System, is in the process of helping 100 emergency responders statewide be better prepared when called to farm emergencies.

In addition, for the first time, a train-the-trainer course will be offered, providing participants instruction on how they can organize and conduct their very own Agriculture Rescue Training.
