Keeping farms and families safe

In 1991, Carle Foundation Hospital recognized the need for education in agricultural safety after the devastating loss of Clifford and Dean Roberts, father and son who died in separate farming incidents. The Roberts family, in conjunction with Bernice and Zelma Holl, established the Roberts Memorial Fund to help support the Center for Rural Health and Farm Safety.

Today, the Center continues to promote agricultural health and safety to our rural neighbors and to prepare pre-hospital and emergency medicine providers to respond quickly and effectively to farming incidents and injuries.
