Learn more about Farm 911: The Emily Project

Farm 911 brings ideas, resources and community partners together to improve emergency services in our rural communities. Farm accidents can occur in the most remote locations, making it difficult for first responders to easily locate the situation. There is a flaw in the system – not all rural property entrances have signage. In the summer of 2014, a young girl’s life was lost when first responders could not find the scene of the accident. Farm 911 is working to decrease the chances of this happening ever again. Learn more about this incredible project and how it will improve safety in our rural communities.
