The "QUALITY OF LIFE ACTION TEAM" will prioritize and focus on
one or two significant innovative efforts that relate to rural
health, crime, and healthcare, as well as farm safety and other
issues that affect quality of life for members.
Illinois Farm Bureau ACTION TEAMs develop ideas that benefit
members and agriculture. Help keep these great projects going
by asking members to join an ACTION TEAM. Projects have
Enhancing farmers' quality of life is what this TEAM is about.
Just published was Rules of the Country Road, a booklet to alert
motorists to things that are unique to rural driving, and a
reminder to all to share the road safely and courteously. Last
year, 15 inch digital photo frames were distributed to over 30
county Farm Bureaus, preloaded with health and safety messages that
scroll continuously. Previously, over 300 people attended Dr. Ron
Hanson's farm succession and family communication mini seminars at
IFB'sAannual Meeting to learn more about planning for the future.
For two years monetary rebates went to the county Farm Bureaus for
the purchase of warning signs for the farm or rural roadways.
Additionally, 50,000 Share the Road Safely fact cards with tips for
farmers and motorists are still being distributed, as well as
thousands of safety signs and stickers. Other projects have
included health ads for farmers for use in county publications,
"File of Life" emergency packets, and a CPR training grant.
Watch for more roadway safety resources coming soon!
