VERSAILLES - The Versailles FFA Chapter will be sponsoring the seventh biannual EMS/Firefighter Farm Safety Day in conjunction with the local Versailles firefighters and EMS personnel to educate those from Darke County and other counties on the current farm safety procedures that have been established.

This educational event, which includes six rotational sessions and speakers for those who participate, will be held on Sept. 27, at the Versailles EMS/Fire Rescue Center at 8:30 a.m. and will end at approximately 4 p.m. Eight CEU credits will be given to those who participate.

To show appreciation to those who participate in the seventh biannual EMS/Firefighter Farm Safety Day by attending, there will be a free breakfast and lunch provided. The participants will have the opportunity to hear from several guest speakers.

Another key component that this Farm Safety Day will focus on will be bus safety. Participants will be able to participate in a hands-on mock bus disaster that will involve several members of the Versailles FFA Chapter. Attendees will be able to utilize the skills they were taught through the rotations and guest speakers provided to come together and use the proper steps to successfully complete the bus disaster.

In addition to the bus mock disaster the attendees will have to complete, there will also be six other rotations provided. They include: a bus mass casualty incident, a rollover tractor scenario, an anhydrous ammonia tank situation, a PTO/Auger mock accident and a bus extrication situation. One of the main key points that this Farm Safety Day intends to relay are common farm safety scenarios that local safety personnel may have to endure.

All of the rotations are hands-on and educational. This event is limited to the first 100 participants. Wear clothes appropriate for outside weather. This event is free, but the deadline to register is Monday, Sept. 22. To RSVP contact Dena Wuebker at: 937-526-4427 ext. 3113 (Versailles High School), 937-423-2369 (after 3:05 p.m.), or by email at dena_wuebker@darke.k12.oh.us
