FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE  

MARCY—The New York Power Authority (NYPA) will participate in the Oneida County Farm/Home Safety Day on June 7 at the Boonville Fairgrounds. Approximately 350 fifth-grade students from six area elementary schools – Remsen, General William Floyd, Holland Patent, Forestport, West Leyden and Boonville – are expected to attend. 

Two staff members from NYPA’s Frederick R. Clark Energy Center in Marcy—David Neary, safety, health and fire protection administrator, and Ann Cianfrocco, community relations specialist—will teach a class on safety. All Safety Day attendees will receive safety glasses from NYPA. 

The goal of the Safety Day is to teach children how to prevent injuries. There will be a wide range of presenters from local fire departments, industries, local hospitals and equipment dealers.
