Progressive Agriculture Foundation safety day coordinators share safety stories:
"A few years ago, our community experienced a tragic farming incident involving a young boy and a power-take-off (PTO). Since that incident, the young boy's family has been involved in most of our Progressive Agriculture Safety Days speaking from their experience to show how quickly an incident can occur in the hope of preventing other incidents."
-Judy Wile, PAF Safety Day Coordinator in Hermitage and Shippenville, Pennsylvania
"Participants from our Progressive Agriculture Safety Day drew pictures of something they learned from attending, which were then made into buttons for them to take home and serve as a safety and health reminder."
-Jodi Richmond, PAF Safety Day Coordinator in Hinton, West Virginia
"A grandmother of a young boy who attended our Progressive Agriculture Safety Day shared that he went directly home, got his toy tractor out and showed his parents all the potential blind spots. He then told his parents he would never play hide-and-seek around the farm machinery."
-Karna Dam, PAF Safety Day Coordinator in Scribner, Nebraska
"It is so rewarding to see the youth leaders, both FFA and 4-H members, have an opportunity to teach youth participants at our Progressive Agriculture Safety Day on a topic they had been learning about for the past few weeks in an engaging, hands-on manner."
-Spencer Gee, PAF Safety Day Coordinator in Millport, Pennsylvania
