CPI is committed to teaching the youth in our communities about the importance of safety on the farm. The safety team travels to a variety of events throughout the year to promote the Farm Safety 4 Just Kids Program. This program gives kids a chance to get first hand experience with the dangers that surround the farm and learn how to keep themselves and their friends safe. Our mission: Promote a safe farm environment to prevent health hazards, injuries, and fatalities to children and youth. Farm Safety For Just Kids offers various resources and programs to help teach farm safety. According to the National Children’s Center, more than 100 youths and adolescents are killed and another 23,000 injured every year on farms and ranches in the United States. As a member of Farm Safety 4 Just Kids, CPI can provide you with farm safety information or even do a presentation for local organizations or groups. For more information, please contact our chapter coordinator Mark Hueftle at the Funk office at (308) 263-2441. Fun games and more information are also available on the FS4JK website, www.farmsafetyforjustkids.org.
