In this episode, we talk with Dan Neenan, director of the National Education Center for  Agricultural Safety, about anhydrous ammonia. Dan has worked as a firefighter and paramedic responding to anhydrous ammonia releases.

“I’ve been a paramedic coming up on 30 years now and I don’t think I’ve seen anybody in more pain than a gentleman that I had that was sprayed in the face and on the eyes with anhydrous ammonia.” Dan describes anhydrous ammonia and the PPE you need to wear when working with it.
