Training Materials
Training manual coming soon!

This training manual will serve as a guide to help you train others in the RF-DASH program. Similar to the in-person trainings, this manual will walk you through the five modules of the RF-DASH program, how to conduct a training and farm visit, tips on talking to the media about a agricultural incident, and much more. We want you to be the advocate for the program and expand its reach to others in your community, and be the rural emergency responder that delivers agriculture safety and health.

Firefighters/EMS are trusted sources of information for media professionals and the communities they serve. The RF-DASH Media Guidelines for Emergency Responders is designed to help firefighters and EMS on how to conduct interviews with the media, disseminate health and safety messages, and tips on how to establish relationships with your local media organizations.

These slides are an adaptation of the RF-DASH Media Guidelines for in-classroom use.
