Safety On Highways Event

Fulton County Farm Bureau is holding “Safety On Our Highways” event Thursday, April 18, at 9:30 a.m. at Johnston Farms, 800 Back Run Road, McConnellsburg.

The bureau will present an array of agricultural equipment that may be, and likely will be, encountered sometime over the coming spring and summer months. The emphasis, of course, is on safety for both the operators of this equipment and the travelling public.

Included in the hour-long presentation will be advisors from law enforcement, safety statisticians, others who can share experiences in these circumstances, and what the outcomes have been, and what they may have been.

Rural Roads Safety Week is a great opportunity to raise awareness about the importance of being safe everywhere on the highways or not. Travelling on the highways in slowmoving vehicles or in vehicles of much greater speeds always presents an opportunity for mishap.

Directions to Johnston Farm: about 1.5 miles south of McConnellsburg, turn west onto Back Run Road, traveling about one mile to 800 Back Run Road, large machine building sits along the highway.
