Farm Safety Day welcomes Grade 6 to 9 classes to attend this FREE day of learning aimed at enhancing students’ awareness and understanding of rural and farm safety. Students, teachers and parent chaperones will have access to interactive activities and information stations on a variety of topics including livestock safety, equipment safety, working with electricity, distracted driving, ATVing, first aid and more.

  • This is a free event offered to Grade 6 to 9 classes across Alberta
  • Pre-registration is required to secure your spot
  • Funding is available to assist with bussing costs

Building awareness of farm safety is essential to keeping our rural youth and families safe. Funding is available to those schools that require it, to help cover the transportation costs associated with bussing students to and from Stampede Park. We thank AltaLink for their support in making this possible.

This project is supported by the FCC Ag Safety Fund administered by the Canadian
Agricultural Safety Association with funding from Farm Credit Canada.
