After experiencing almost $10 million in dollar loss to farm-related fires since 2010, the Perth East Fire Department is launching a major farm fire safety program. “Building A Farm Fire Safe Community” launches today in the Townships of Perth East & Perth South and the Municipality of West Perth. The first year of the program will include a series of farm fire safety videos, direct mail campaigns, event attendance, presentations, social media blitzes (#FFSC) and a custom farm fire safety plan program.
The program has attracted some major supporters who have partnered up with the fire department for this initiative. Tradition Mutual Insurance Company, North Waterloo Farmers Mutual Insurance Company, South Easthope Mutual Insurance Company and the Perth-Huron Insurance Brokers Association have signed on as Gold Sponsors and official partners in farm fire safety.
