National Education Center for Agricultural Safety (NECAS)
The National Education Center for Agricultural Safety (NECAS) is dedicated to preventing illnesses, injuries, and deaths among farmers and ranchers, agricultural and horticultural workers, their families, and their employees. In 1997, we opened NECAS with Northeast Iowa Community College. NECAS is the only organization with hands-on farm equipment safety training center. The facility also houses classrooms and a library and resource center.
Our concern for safety in rural areas goes beyond farms and ranches. The need for our services spreads from citrus groves in the South to vineyards in the West. It covers cattle ranches in Wyoming, fisheries in Maine, and thousands of ventures in between. --- from the NECAS Web site
