The Progressive Agriculture Safety Day will be held on Tuesday, Aug. 1, at the Jefferson County Fairgrounds in Fairbury. This year’s Safety Day is the 24rd event for the local chapter of Jefferson County Farm Safety 4 Just Kids.
Safety Day is not just for “farm kids,” organizers said. Safety Day is designed to provide safety information that is agriculturally oriented as well as general safety information.
Through hands-on activities, participants learn to prevent incidents and reduce the extent of injuries if incidents do occur. Safety Day stresses the importance of children taking responsibility for their own safety, respecting parents’ safety rules, and sharing safety tips with their family and friends.
Progressive Agriculture Safety Day is organized by Jefferson County Farm Safety 4 Just Kids. It is made possible by The Progressive Agriculture Foundation. Area business sponsors are key to making Safety Day successful.
