Safety first

Lee Fritsch, left, of the Lower Colorado River Authority, and Lampasas Independent School District maintenance worker Bart Clary use a dummy to illustrate tractor safety during Progressive Agriculture Safety Day last week at Hanna Springs Intermediate. The event included volunteers from the Texas AgriLife Extension Service, the Natural Resources Conservation Service, the Central Texas Council of Governments and the Texas Department of Transportation. A variety of educational stations available to Hanna Springs fifth-grade students included a vehicle rollover simulation; drug and alcohol abuse prevention information; displays about snake and animal safety, chemicals and safe water practices; gun safety; and proper handling of lawn mowers.
