Mesa County’s Transportation Safety Committee, which includes employees from the Transportation, Traffic and Fleet Departments, each year organizes a two-day Safety Fair and Rodeo.
Local road departments participate in safety training classes, as well as an equipment rodeo to increase their knowledge of safety issues and improve their skills using the equipment.
Each employee has the opportunity to compete in five rodeo events (track hoe, backhoe, truck, skid steer and loader).
Through this event, employees are enhancing their knowledge and abilities in order to provide the public with quality roads and road maintenance.
Of course, the training/rodeo is followed by lunch.
Here are some pictures from the event Wednesday morning:
