Temperatures dropping in your area?

Some farmers are unaffected by the dropping temperatures, but if you live in an area that does get a bit cold this time of year, keep these things in mind:

  • Wear warm, loose fitting layers, preferably wool and water repellent.
  • Wear mittens, if possible as they keep your fingers warmer
  • Cover your head and ears as they lose heat the fastest
  • Stay dry
  • Don’t drink alcohol which causes you to lose heat faster
  • Watch for frostbite and hypothermia

About Farm Safety For Just Kids

Farm Safety For Just Kids is a non-profit organization devoted to promoting a safe farm environment to prevent health hazards, injuries, and fatalities to rural children and youth. We produce and distribute educational materials addressing various dangers commonly found in the rural environment. Farm Safety For Just Kids is supported by a chapter network of grassroots volunteers located throughout the United States and Canada. The organization also has part-time outreach coordinators in several states. Chapters, outreach coordinators, and volunteers conduct educational programs to raise awareness about safety and health issues affecting their communities.
