“Yet again we see more devasting natural disasters this year. And, while we can’t control the weather, we can control how ready we are. Sitting down with your family and farmworkers to make a plan can save you a lot of stress when that time comes. Be sure to include items everyone will need and what tasks they will be responsible for. It’s also a good idea to make different plans for different types of disasters that may impact you.”
And, having a plan can help after a natural disaster.
“Those suffering from wildfires and Hurricane Ida know too well how life following a disaster may feel chaotic for days, If not weeks. First, make sure everyone is safe, and they have everything they need to get them through the next few days. Determine what your plan of action will be, and assess what damages you have. Finally, be sure to find out what resources are available to you, your family and your farm.”
