Any of these can greatly impact individuals, farms, animals and businesses in the affected areas.

Taking steps before theSE EVENTS occur can prevent or minimize the impact on human and animal health or property damage.

This website houses a database of resources and factsheets to help citizens of rural agricultural communities prepare for and recover from a number of natural, biological and man-made threats.
