Farm Mapping to Assist, Protect and Prepare Emergency Responders (Farm MAPPER) is a interactive web tool that provides emergency responders with onsite information
about hazards and physical layouts of agricultural operations. Using QR (quick response) codes to connect responders to a securitized website where farm owners have mapped crucial information, emergency responders are provided with real time information to assist their response and protect them in the process.
The National Farm Medicine Center had teamed up with the Pittsville Wisconsin Fire Department to develop and test the system by first responders. See Farm MAPPER for more information.
