jch&l fairbury nebraska

Registration forms are now available for the Progressive Agriculture Safety Day set for Tuesday, July 30, at the Jefferson County Fairgrounds in Fairbury. This year’s Safety Day is the 25th event for the local chapter of Jefferson County Farm Safety 4 Just Kids.

            Registration forms are available at Jefferson Community Health & Life, the Jefferson County Extension service, and the Fairbury Public Library. You may also request a form by calling 402-729-6855 or emailing [email protected].

            Safety Day is not just for “farm kids,” organizers said. Safety Day is designed to provide safety information that includes both general safety and farm safety. The day is offered for children who are entering Kindergarten through 7th grade in the fall. The day’s events begin at 8:15 a.m. and end at 2:15 p.m. The cost is $6 per child or $12 per family by July 23, or $10 per child after July 23. Walk-ins are accepted on the day of the event.

            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. Donations are welcome.

            Anyone who needs more information on Safety Day should call the Nebraska Extension office in Jefferson County at (402) 729-3487, or Coordinator Lana Likens at JCH&L at (402) 729-6855.
