NFPA introduces new checklist on barn fire safety

title

By Lisa Braxton

Several devastating barn fires have occurred in Canada during the past two weeks, resulting in a massive loss of animal life and millions of dollarsworth of property damage. Two separate fires claimed the lives of 56 horses, another killed around 500 goats and 30 cattle, while yet another killed approximately 2,000 pigs.

En réponse, NFPA is introducing a new barn fire safety checklist as a resource to prevent more tragedies.

Here are some tips included in the checklist:

  • Make sure electrical equipment is kept clean and free of damage
  • Secure heaters to prevent them from falling over
  • Store oily rags in a closed, metal container away from the heat
  • Ensure that everyone who uses barns participates in barn fire drills

En outre, NFPA offers a collection of rural fire safety tips and NFPA 150,Standard on Fire and Life Safety in Animal Housing Facilities.
