The students learned from the Missouri State Highway Patrol and the Hannibal fire department among other area professionals.
The students were shown real life examples about the importance of wearing a seat belt and what to do in case of a fire.
"We’re learning about safe stuff and about how something could happen with a tractor if you put your hands near the blades when the key is on." said Leighton Hudson, a 4th grade student from Stowell Elementary.
Students also learned about being safe with ATV’s. The program was organized by the University of Missouri extension.
