Farm Safety

Many came together over the weekend to increase awareness, while improving the health and safety of the community. Saturday afternoon, many people came out to the Community Health and Safety Fair to take advantage of a variety of health screens, as well as the safety information available.

The department of Farm and Safety conducted a mock rescue of tractor rollover and an ATV accident to show the importance of farm safety. Every year tractor accidents are the leading cause of farm deaths in Kentucky and ATV injuries and deaths are increasing.
