Marilyn Adams started Farm Safety 4 Just Kids (FS4JK) as a grassroots movement after her son died from suffocation during an incident involving a gravity flow wagon. The movement, which began in Iowa, grew to become a nonprofit organization serving the United States and Canada.
The organization provides resources and training to individuals and groups who wish to conduct activities promoting safety awareness on farms and ranches. FS4JK chapters are located in most U.S. states and in four Canadian territories. FS4JK memberships are available for individuals and businesses.
