SENECA FALLS, N.Y. — Don’t miss NYCAMH at the annual Empire Farm Days! Held at Rodman Lott and Sons Farms in Seneca Falls, NY on August 7th-9th, Empire Farm Days is a great opportunity to have some fun and learn more about agricultural safety. This year the New York Center for Agricultural Medicine and Health (NYCAMH) will be there with booths for everyone.
At the “youth activities” table children can participate in the Wheel of Safety: a great test of your child’s farm safety awareness. Children will learn the importance of personal protective equipment (PPE) and animal safety in an engaging, interactive manner. Children of all ages are welcome to participate or stand back and observe.
Wondering how you could work or live more safely on the farm? Look for the “PPE” booth where you can receive information on purchasing PPE for your farm and your employees. PPE can be purchased at the booth while supplies last, or can be ordered through our catalog.
Throughout the three days there will be an exciting fire extinguisher demonstration located next to the NYCAMH tent. You will have the opportunity to watch and learn, or you can get involved and try the proper techniques yourself!
For those of you feeling like this year’s lucky winners, there will be two raffle baskets this year. Don’t miss out on your chance to win PPE and a Tractor Supply gift certificate!
NYCAMH aims to make your life safer and to do so with ease and comfort.
At the “Outreach Services” booth you will be greeted by friendly staff who are there to answer your questions about how NYCAMH can help you. NYCAMH also offers the John May Farm Safety Fund and ROPS rebate programs to assist you. Stop by on Tuesday and Wednesday between 9am-12pm or 1pm-3pm and receive a free skin cancer screening, or on Thursday during the same hours for a free hearing and vision screening.
Come visit the NYCAMH tent at the corner of East Pencil Pusher Ave and Sunrise Blvd near the demonstration field to join in the fun!
NYCAMH/NEC, a program of Bassett Healthcare, funded in part by the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH), and the New York State Departments of Labor and Health, is enhancing agricultural and rural health by preventing and treating occupational injury and illness.
