Did you know?

Balance is the key to effectively dealing with stress and we all need to find our own balance.

Emergency Information

We hope that you or your family or workers will never be in the following situation, but it is important to be prepared in case it does happen.  Young children should be able to read the Emergency Contact Sheet (included on this website).  It is also a good idea to have children practice on a disengaged phone, and to discuss how they might feel and react in an emergency situation.  The reality is that a child could be the person in the position to make this difficult call when someone’s life depends on it.

What to tell the dispatcher

  1. The location of the emergency scene
  2. The nature of the incident (fall, electrocution, entrapment by tractor, entanglement, etc.)
  3. The number of casualties
  4. The condition of casualty (bleeding, breathing difficulty, entanglement, amputation, etc.)
  5. The type of aid that has been given (CPR, tractor has been shut off, etc.)
  6. Whether someone will meet EMS at the road entrance to a remote location
  7. Any special conditions that may hinder rescue, such as known medical conditions of casualty (heart, diabetes, epilepsy) or difficulty reaching the emergency site (mud, fallen trees, up a silo, etc.)
  8. Other information as necessary
  9. Do not hang up the phone until advised by dispatcher to do so.

Ensure that everyone on your farm knows where the First Aid Kits and Fire Extinguishers are located.

Land Locations

The land location template can be used to keep track of all the areas where people might be working regardless of whether it is land that is owned, rented or for whatever reason worked on.
