Farm Safety

Farm Safety


Each farm is unique, which means each farm should have a unique farm fire safety plan. We've made it quick & easy for farm owners/operators to qualify for a custom-made fire safety plan for their farm.

A farm fire safety plan may include:

  • In-person assessment
  • Fire pre-planning
  • Water supply assessment
  • Owner/operator/employee training
  • Fire drill scenarios
  • Livestock evacuation planning
  • Fire safety checklist
  • Farm fire safety for kids

The Ontario Federation of Agriculture (OFA) is a great partner for farm fire safety. The OFA can help Fire Chiefs with the following:

  • Tours and or training opportunities at farm operations in your local area
  • Speaking at County Chiefs or Mutual Aid meetings
  • Engage at the local level to explore The Emily Project - 
  • Promoting fire safety and fire safety/emergency planning on farms
