Seeing something live for the first time can have a big impact. Whether it is a positive or negative occurrence, being present can make a difference in how one may think, feel or react in the future.
This is the goal for the Safety and Rescue Demonstrations at Farmfest 2019. Farm Bureau Financial Services and UMASH have collaborated to bring live demonstrations in an effort for attendees to witness the impact of the dangers associated with farming. These demonstrations can send a powerful message to both adults and youth of how quickly injuries and death can happen on the farm and the importance of prevention. Trained local firefighters, EMS personnel and farm safety experts will be leading the demonstrations and highlighting safety best practices, which is essential to prevention and putting safety first.
