Mobilized Agricultural Machinery Rescue Training

Year Funded





The initiative places high quality agricultural machinery rescue instruction into tobacco-dependent and agricultural-dependent communities throughout NC. The goals are to mobilize the agricultural machinery rescue introductory and certification courses by purchasing specific instructional equipment and to strengthen the rescue and emergency response needs in NC communities. The project is needed throughout NC to support the efforts of local emergency personnel and to alleviate the unattainable financial burden to community colleges to purchase dedicated equipment and other highly-specified course materials.
