Introducing Code Red
Code Red.jpg

Learn how you can prevent a code red situation for your family, business or farm operation by having a completed Code Red plan. This new tool developed by the Purdue Women in Agriculture Team is a must have tool for every family, business, and farm operation. The tool includes important information such as passwords, bank account information, rental agreements, insurance papers and power of attorney documents and much more in one easy location. After completing the Code Red plan, it should become the "go to" tool if something happened to a key member of the management team. We hope this tool will help farm families then turn a code red situation into a code green and the​ business can continue to operate on a daily basis. Code Red also can be a tool that helps families get motivated to get started on estate and/or succession planning.

There are several meetings available for you to learn more about this program. Check out this link for more information:
