Safety association hosts breakfast in Alma

by Caroline Sealey

ALMA - “Don’t be hasty, use safety” was the theme of the Wellington County Farm and Home Safety Association’s pancake breakfast at the Alma Community Centre on Feb. 25.

Association member Walter Grose (aka Safety Sam) said, “I am really impressed and overwhelmed with the turnout today. Over 250 people came to learn about safety around the farm and home.

“I’d like to thank everyone on behalf of the association who helped out. Everyone here working has volunteered their time, including the helpers cooking in the kitchen.”

Grose also offered special thanks to the Wellington County Junior Farmers for their assistance.

Each child received a passport and a chance to visit 14 safety-related stations.

Completed passports could be exchanged for a prize.

Stations included presentations on a farm hazard box, gun safety, Crime Stoppers, chemical safety, St. John’s First Aid, “slips, trips and falls,” OPP unit, Ministry of Labour, Safe Communities,  guard safety, “plugged fire safety,” electrical safety, grain safety, snowblower, PTO and tractor safety.

Over 20 sponsors and suppliers contributed to the event.
