During the summer when your kids are around the farm is a good time to check for warning signs and decals.
Signs and decals may not keep out unauthorized people, but they may remind workers to use caution, or tell children that the area is off-limits. To be effective, everyone must know what the signs mean, and follow the directions given.
Signs may warn about lack of oxygen, poison, or grain-wagon dangers. The "Danger! Never Play Here!" decals help reinforce family safety rules when you aren't around.
Contact your County Iowa State University Extension office to see where you can get safety signs and decals. Your kids may enjoy helping you post them, and you'll feel better, too.
