One group proposed for Rural System is that of Safety and Security. Its core concept is that of, “improving health and reducing accidents and diseases are likely to provide as much or more net economic values to the people of the region than improving crop production and its gains.”
This unit of RRx deals with an unusual mix of safety and security issues. It is a large subsystem designed to achieve some profits from a typically service -oriented activity within government. Rural System philosophy is that for the family, not having a medical bill from a fall or a cut (say, of $500) is at least as important to the family budget as producing $500 profit at the farm market. Safety and Security works to deliver this net benefit to the family.
A colleague has offered the attached unit on how to reduce fire hazards. Reducing such losses, pain, and costs will become a need in the future work of Rural System. We appreciate the link to an infographic supplied by Thomas Jepsen and encourage its use for fire safety for children.
We have split the infographic into smaller pieces to allow you to read it more easily. The full image can be viewed on his website.
