Connect with your community now to prepare for disasters later

Emergency managers and first responders have a saying, “All disasters are local.” Each tornado, flood or other emergency directly impacts only a local area. The recent earthquake/tsunami in Japan has global implications, but the real disaster is centered on each effected community. Everyone lives, works and plays within a community that may one day be impacted by a disaster. The response to that event will require more than the efforts of local police, fire and emergency medical services to overcome the impact. It will require a network of individuals involved in neighborhood, civic, business and church organizations working together to respond and rebuild the community. FULL STORY »

Putting the polish on the public’s perception of farming

Does the public think that farmers are protecting the environment, taking good care of their animals and producing food that is safe and wholesome for their families? Who is the general public? Is it your neighbor, the family in Los Angeles, or is it the person reporting the news? These are tough questions to answer, but worth your time to try. FULL STORY »
