Calgary – Just a few spaces remain for teachers looking to register their classes for the Calgary Stampede’s Farm Safety Day, supported by AltaLink. This day of fun, hands-on and interactive learning offers a unique opportunity to Calgary-area students in grades six to nine to boost their safety knowledge.

On Tuesday, May 8, 2018, students will experience a wide variety of farm and rural safety sessions at Stampede Park, with specialized demonstration equipment such as a grain rescue simulator and a vehicle roll-over simulator. Other sessions include working with electricity, ATV and heavy machinery safety, livestock handling and more. Teachers must secure a spot for their class by pre-registering.  There is no cost for schools to participate in this event and funding is available to assist with bussing costs.

More information about Farm Safety Day can be found on the Calgary Stampede website.
