From Press Reports

Nicholas Jones of Mathiston participated in the 2012 Farm Bureau Youth Safety Camp, which was June 4-7 at Timber Creek Camp near Pulaski.

More than 75 young people from all over Mississippi came together for a four-day camp that emphasized safety as it relates to agriculture, driving and health. During the camp, programs were presented on Tractor Safety, the dangers of Distracted Driving, Home Safety, First Aid, ATV Safety, Shop and Machinery Safety, and Electrical Safety.

Farm Bureau annually holds this safety camp to educate the state’s youth about the many dangers that confront them every day.

To date, it has been documented that more than 50 lives have been saved because of the training received at this camp.
