First Response Video

This 22-minute video was produced by NAAREF to aid emergency first responders in the event they are called upon to respond to an ag aircraft accident and possible pesticide spill. Because time is critical for an injured pilot, emergency personnel must quickly protect themselves with the proper personal protective equipment (PPE) for the crop protection product onboard. Rapid identification of the product and information provided by the chemical label will ensure the proper PPE is used. The mixed product in the hopper may have been diluted many times from its original state, thereby reducing its hazard.
