Fire Extinguisher Checklist To Prevent Farm Fires


Firefighters’ response times can vary in rural areas since most farms are located away from fire stations. Hence, being able to safely control a small fire on your own with fire extinguishers before the firefighters arrive is crucial. We’ve created a simple checklist to ensure that your farm’s fire extinguishers are ready when there’s a fire emergency.

  • Install portable fire extinguishers near farm building exits and in areas that are easily accessible in the event of a fire
  • Equip tractors and other mobilized equipment with multi-purpose fire extinguishers
  • Ensure all fire extinguishers are properly maintained and regularly inspected
  • Train all employees and family members on how to use portable fire extinguishers safely and effectively
