Farm Safety

A barn fire is a farmer’s worst nightmare and often, it brings significant emotional and economic damage to a farming community. The Ontario Fire Marshal has indicated that between 2007 and 2011, barn fires in Ontario accounted for over $175 million in property losses. For more information on barn fires, please visit the Ministry of Agriculture and Food website.
