Sometimes the oldest lessons are the most important. In this case, the cliche' "Safety First."
Many kids are exposed to hazardous machinery while working on their family farms and over $1 billion is spent to tend to those injuries.
26,000 children are injured each year from farm and ranch related accidents and Educational programs are out to battle that statistic.
At the Taylor County Expo Center, local youth learned the importance of safety when handling the hazardous equipment that could be found on farms.
Everything from fire and electrical safety to internet protection and guns were touched on.
Kids were educated on drug prevention and weather safety and even how to prevent dangerous accidents from occurring.
4-H Club volunteers assisted in running the stations that taught kids how to protect themselves and member Bailey Nervig said that it's knowing how to protect yourself that can save your life.
"I think it's important they know what could happen if they play with guns or play with fire or play on the train tracks or anything they've been learning." Nervig said.
Kids from the ages of 9-15 were invited to take part in the day's events.
