Meeting to help handle ag emergencies
Agriculture is everywhere in North Dakota. It is one of the big three industries in the state. As the industry has grown, farmers are using larger equipment and more powerful chemicals in their operations. Experts have also become aware of more and more threats to crops and livestock from all around the world.
All of these things combine to make ag-related emergencies more likely to occur in the future. How local emergency personnel handle those threats and accidents is the topic of a meeting that will happen at the Beulah Civic Center on Jan. 11-12, 2011.
