Youth learn tractor safety
Photo supplied The Lafayette County Tractor Safety class went to the Darlington Fire Department firehouse on Saturday, March 7, where Scott Glendenning and Tim Hastert taught them about fire safety in general and on farm machinery. Zach White, Blanchardville, asked how heavy the fire department uniform was. He didn't have to ask he got to see for himself.
DARLINGTON - Sixteen youth in the Lafayette County Tractor Safety program experienced true "hands-on" learning on Saturday, March 7, thanks in great part to Ritchie Implement and the Darlington Fire Department. Participants met at Ritchie Implement, where Rodger Wiegel and the staff helped youth look at different pieces of equipment, assess the safety issues with each piece, and talk about what needed to be changed. Youth had a tour of Ritchie's facilities and of the different equipment that Ritchie Implement carries or helps fix.
