Farm equipment accidents can be all too common in rural Illinois. And – first-responders in Iroquois County will learn more about their roles in such accidents today (Saturday).
"Spring Farm Accidents" is the focus of a continuing-education opportunity for first-responders in the southeast parking lot of the Iroquois County Administrative Center.
The class will teach Fire, EMS and Tele-Communicators what to do in emergency situations involving farm equipment accidents.
Iroquois County 9-1-1, Iroquois Memorial Hospital, and Birkey's Farm Equipment dealership of Gibson City sponsor the program from 9 am 'til 12 Noon. Emergency room personnel, farm equipment experts and 9-1-1 instructors will share educational presentations.
The public is welcome.
