Make the Best Out of a Code Red Situation! 
Be Prepared with a Code Red Flash Drive. ​

The Purdue Women in Agriculture Team found a need for farm families and small businesses to have one central location to collect critical business information required for day to day operations.  In the event of a crisis in the operation, the business would be able to continue with minimal disruptions in a timely fashion while utilizing the Code Red document.  The crisis may be only for a short time or it may be a long term change in the operation but the need for timely information about the people in the operation and their contacts are very important. 

For more information about Code Red, please contact any member of the Purdue Women in Agriculture Team or visit the Code Red page on this website.  Code Red Flash Drives are available for purchase this holiday season.  Ordering information can be found on the Code Red page or by contacting any Purdue Women in Agriculture Team member.
