Herkimer County Farm & Home Safety Day
The Herkimer County Soil and Water Conservation District held their 20th Annual Herkimer County Farm and Home Safety Day on Tuesday, June 4th, 2019. The event was held at the Herkimer County Fair Grounds in Frankfort, NY. The goal of Farm and Home Safety Day is to prevent farm and home injuries and deaths by teaching children about safety related hazards and how to avoid them.

This year, there were approximately 640 fifth graders from schools throughout Herkimer County attending including: West Canada Valley, Frankfort-Schuyler, Herkimer Elementary, Central Valley Academy, and more.

Participants are divided into small groups that rotate between seventeen stations, each of which will teach a specific safety topic such as: bike safety, pool and water safety, electrical safety, lawn equipment safety, etc.. Each group had at least one adult leader who guided them through the stations.

The Herkimer County Farm and Home Safety Day is made possible by donations from local businesses and our dedicated volunteers.
