UMaine Extension Offers Wintertime Farming Safety Tips

University of Maine Cooperative Extension specialists coordinating the Maine AgrAbility project have offered a number of safety considerations for people who must work outdoors in cold and inclement weather. They include dressing to accommodate changing weather conditions, keeping safety gear, a first aid kit, a pocket multi-tool, headlamp and a cell phone handy, having proper food and hydration supplies and letting someone know when and where they’ll be working. Maine AgrAbility is a collaborative project with Alpha One, Goodwill Industries of Northern New England and UMaine Extension designed to assist farmers with disabilities or chronic health conditions. Project coordinator Lani Carlson in the UMaine Extension Franklin County office in Farmington can be reached for more information at 207.944.1533
