One would expect 3 motor vehicle accidental deaths, 1 home accidental death and less than 1 work accidental death per year. The statistics show that for a farm resident group of the population size of Pocahontas County, there were 6 accidental deaths and 54 disabling injuries.\r\n\r\nDo you now see why all of us should \u201cZero-In on Safety?\u201d\r\n\r\nTom Williams, Chairman\r\nSafety Committee\r\n\r\nMRS.
