Community Outreach and Education on Soil Fumigants
Registrants' Information for Communities
We required fumigant registrants to develop and implement community outreach programs to ensure that information about fumigants and safety is available in communities where soil fumigation occurs. Outreach programs help address the risk of bystander exposure by educating community members about:
- buffer zones;
- how to recognize warning signs; and
- how to respond appropriately in case of an incident.
Registrants have also developed and distributed information for first responders and medical professionals to help them identify and appropriately respond to incidents of exposure to soil fumigants.
