Farm Fire Safety

Farm Fire

As a farmer, your time and equipment are very precious and you have your own set of fire problems. Here’s why farmers trust STOP-FYRE® as the best fire extinguisher and their first choice in fire safety:

  • Activities with a high chance of fire (e.g. welding, cutting, harvest, etc.)
  • Large volume of flammables (e.g. hay, fuel, wood, etc.)
  • Remote location results in longer fire department response times
  • Livelihood and home are at risk at the same time
  • Three times more likely to have a fire
  • Average a fire every 3-4 years large enough to need a fire extinguisher
  • Significant amount of expensive machinery, property, and buildings at risk
  • Lack of time to maintain dry chemical units resulting in greater risk of non-functional extinguishers
