RURAL SAFETY UNIT

Ag for Life’s Rural Safety Unit is on-the-road and ready to travel to schools, communities, fairs, festivals and other events to educate, encourage and promote rural and farm safety. Programming is aimed at youth and their families, who live on, work, play or visit farms and ranches.

The mobile unit is operated by our team of program specialists who travel across the province connecting visitors with important rural and farm safety information. With seven interactive stations, participants have the opportunity to learn while they engage with digital, tactile and mechanical interactive displays.

Station Topics Include:
 

  • Hazard Identification

  • Large Animals

  • Large Equipment

  • Utilities

  • Risk Assessment

  • Chemicals

  • Protective Equipment

 

Additional topics and content will continue to be added each year to ensure new, relevant and engaging safety educational experience awaits the user.

The Rural Safety Unit operates between April and October each year. School programs are geared towards grades 6-12 and community event programming can be tailored towards families attending.

Stay tuned for booking updates coming soon!
