There have been a total of eight farm related accidents in Rockingham County this year. So on Saturday, the Farm Bureau, along wth the local fire departments and rescue squads, sponsored a safety field day. Farmers, along with homeowners, were shown how to safely get someone out from underneath a tractor. Some of the other demonstrations included lawn mower safety.
Jeff Herring, a member of the Rockingham Extracation Team, noted, "We cansave even one person, keep one person from getting caught or hurt or even loose a life in accident like this....It's worth it, everything we've done today."
