Local youth attend Farm Bureau Safety Camp
Mitchell McKnight (L to R) and Will Odom from Ackerman recently
attended the Mississippi Farm Bureau Safety Camp held at Gray Center near Canton, MS. The four-day event featured sessions on Fire Safety, Certified CPR, Shop & Machinery Safety, Electrical Safety, Distracted Driving, Tractor Safety, and Drug and Alcohol Safety. There was also lots of time for recreation and social activities for the approximately 75 students that attended.
This annual event is sponsored by the Mississippi Farm Bureau Federation and is intended to educate our youth about the dangers they may run across on the farm or in everyday life. The professional safety educators from Farm Bureau teach classes all year long to more than 30,000 of Mississippi’s youth. For more information about this camp or any other Farm Bureau safety program, call your county Farm Bureau office.
