About this Event
Cultivating Readiness – How to Prepare and Handle Environmental Spills and Emergencies in Agriculture
Farm operations handle a variety of chemicals and other materials safely each year. That management can include pesticides, fertilizers, fuels, oils as well as natural items such as manure and crop residues. Proper management practices can reduce the probability of spills. However, spills will occur despite the best of management practices. Are you prepared and know what to do when a spill occurs?
Join Indiana Department of Environmental Management staff from the Emergency Response Section, Office of Indiana State Chemist, Indiana Department of Homeland Security, and other experts in a discussion about spill-related topics including preplanning, event response and risk management.
