Community Focus - Safety Days
- May 29, 2014
Harlan County Farm Bureau cooperated with 4-H & UK Cooperative Extension to put on Safety Days in Harlan County. Together we wanted to emphasize the importance of safety in all outdoor activities. We can protect lives and livelihoods of our rural families through increased cooperation, communication, awareness and educational initiative focused around safety. Safety should be first priority in all outdoor activities and especially with ATVs. ATVs are used a lot in our area for recreation and farming purposes, and most accidents are attributed to children operating units designed for adults. Over 550 students and 50 adults participated in Safety Days. The following safety needs were also addressed: Swimming, Hunting, Bicycle, ATV, Boating, Fishing, Gun & Hunting, Chainsaw, Weather and Driving. Students learned that safety needs to their first thought in all outdoor activities. It’s easy and simple to make safety a habit.
Kentucky Farm Bureau presented Harlan County Farm Bureau with an Award in Excellence for Outstanding Work in Safety and Health.
