Did You Know?
A Farm Safety Workshop will be offered on Sept. 29 at 9 a.m. at the Community Service Building – Room 202.
Richland County Health Department’s Injury Prevention Coalition obtained a grant from Farm Safety 4 Kids to help educate leaders in the agricultural area of our community. The grant will also allow the Richland County Injury Prevention Coalition to supply printed literature for both adults and children on Farm Safety. Unintentional Injuries are the third leading cause of death in Richland County and number one in the state of Montana, Farm Safety is just one area that the coalition is focusing on.
The workshop will present information on: Farm Safety of Children, Tractor & Implement Safety, Rural Road Safety, Livestock Safety and Chemical/Grain Safety. The coalition’s goal is to give not only information but tools to leaders in hopes that they would share their acquired knowledge with the community.
Presenters include Sunrise Equipment, Sheriff’s Department, MSU Extension Office and RCHD. The coalition would also like to thank Blue Rock Bottling Company and Reese & Ray’s IGA for the lunch.
