FMC Corporation has shown tremendous continued support for the Agricultural Retailers Association (ARA) through the company’s sponsorship of the ARA Conference & Expo. In the new year, FMC will also sponsor a workshop with ARA that will focus on preparing, responding, and sustaining a crisis plan.

This new workshop stems from a crisis communications workshop that FMC has held for the past five years with ARA. The communications workshop has been well-received by participants, with many expressing interest in a workshop that discusses ways to build safety plans for their retail outlets.

“A lot of retailers do have existing safety plans in place, so this course would serve as an excellent refresher course to teach retailers how to work with local law enforcement and fire departments ahead of time so that they aren’t caught flat-footed when an emergency does arise,” said Rick Kesler, Business Services Manager at FMC Corporation, in an interview during the 2016 ARA Conference & Expo.

The intimate workshop will be held February 27 – March 1, 2017 at the Tropicana Hotel in Las Vegas, Nevada, capping attendance at a maximum of 16 participants. Interested participants can register online for the event here.
