Safety is a concern.

What got me thinking of this is just a few minutes ago we heard on the scanner of a 22 yo female trapped under a tractor a on a farm way to the East of us. I immediately thought of the times as a Police Officer and FF EMT that I had responded to this very same type of accident. Some with good outcomes and some not.
Please stay safe and aware when working on around anything you may be working on. Our prayers and good thoughts for all of those who share this hobby or make a living with tractors and the land you work. Also for everyone who works and provides for their families. We especially pray for this young lady and her family and those who have responded to the call for hope. On today, this day of Sunday.
Please be safe and stay healthy. Roger and Mrs. Hamman

In addition to Rogers post. Big or small, every day we need to think safety, not just in the operation of the equipment but also as we work on it. We have had several members get hurt or almost get hurt using tools in the shop. I cannot tell you how many times I have started to do a job and stopped to put safety glasses on, secure what ever I'm working on or to simply take a second look to see if there is something there that could bite me. Think about it before you do it, it just might make your day a bit better.

PTO shafts claim many hands, arms, legs or even lives. Loose clothing is often wound up and folks are pulled into them with dire results. Many die! Respect large equipment and think before you come close to it. Now that farming is going in earnest this is thr best time to bring this up..

If you're to rushed to be safe, then wait until you have time.

I ran out of things to count on... Luckily it was north of 20 when I had to quit.
I won't let anyone including myself drive it without steel toes on.
Thank you for the well wishes, and the same to the Hammands.
Good luck to the lady and her family, I hope it all comes out ok.

Anything can be dangerous. My little boy proved that me when he about gave me a concussion last night with a plastic giraffe!
My great uncle died when a car he was working on fell on him. My dad always tells the story about his bus driver getting killed when a farm tractor rolled on him.
