Agriculture is one of the most dangerous industries in America. Every year needless injuries and deaths occur to farmers, family members, farm employees, and rescue personnel. Emergency responders often lack knowledge of the nature of farm machinery, chemicals, and farm structures. Some rescue techniques may actually increase the risk to the victim and rescue personnel. Training and education in the methods of farm/rural rescue are essential for proper response and safety of the rescuer and patient. GEMSA's goal it to teach a systematic approach to farm rescue procedures that address the safety of both patients and responders.
