There will be two demonstrations at 10:00 a.m. and 12:00 pm on Tuesday and Thursday which will show the hazards related to ATV usage and proper use of protective safety gear for riders. On Wednesday, an agricultural rescue demonstration will take place at 11:00 a.m. and 1:00 p.m. to help prepare responders.
