Farm Fire Safety Tips
Farms fires are a risk to our economy.
Each year in Canada, there are approximately 800 fire-related deaths. Many of these deaths occur on farms.
Fires on farms pose a special threat because most farmers are located far from fire fighting equipment and lack the water needed to extinguish large fires. The economic and personal losses are severe and proportionally much higher than those resulting from fires in urban areas. Explore our safety tips to learn more about how you can help prevent the potential devastation of a large farm fire.
