NORMAN — Cleveland County Extension recently announced its partnership with the ATV Ride Safe Oklahoma Program, an initiative brought on by the OU Medical Center Level I Trauma Center, The Children’s Center, The Oklahoma State Department of Health, Injury Prevention Services and OSU 4-H youth development.
The goal of the program is to decrease injuries and fatalities from ATV use and increase the awareness of safety guidelines.
The hands-on class is brought to teachers that provide youth with a visual aspect to learn basic techniques of how to operate an all-terrain vehicle safely. It also comes at no cost to the institution hosting the class.
Students will be allowed to put on ATV safety gear, learn basic parts of a four-wheeler and receive an in-class certification by the end of the period.
To host an ATV Safety Day, call Jessica at the Cleveland County Extension Office at 321-4774 or email her at firstname.lastname@example.org.
