Winfield Fire/EMS hosts Ag Safety Event

Representatives from Winfield Fire/EMS, Burden Fire Department and Udall Fire Department attended the Ag Safety Event.

PrairieLand Partners and Winfield Fire/EMS department were host to a countywide agriculture safety event Jan. 12 at the PrairieLand Partners Winfield location. The event was put together as an agricultural machinery training event for local first responders and focused on machine related accidents in agriculture.

Technicians from PrairieLand Partners went through agricultural equipment with first responders to help them better understand the equipment. The technicians gave a thorough explanation how the inner workings of a machine are designed and operate. This year’s training focused on entanglement injuries and the proper procedures first responders should use in handling such a scenario.

Cowley County Farm Bureau Association representative Denise Middleton also attended the event with additional data pertaining to farm injuries and fatalities. This is the first year for the event with plans to host similar training annually.
