Fire Chief Talks Prevention & Response

View descriptionShare

The Pittsville Fire Department has had a partnership with the National Farm Medicine Center since the '80s. Pittsville Fire Chief Jerry Minor says this has allowed programming and training to train fire and EMS personnel to respond to farm accidents and emergencies. This includes barn fire prevention. He lists actions you can take today to prevent a barn fire. But what if there is a fire? He says have a plan. It’s better to have the local fire department out on the farm for a tour than fighting a fire that could have been prevented. He explains that the fire department cannot inspect your standard farm like it can a commercial building. He encourages farmers to invite their local department out to create a response plan. Another key message: have a fire extinguisher near every doorway to every building and on your tractors. Make sure you and your employees are trained to use it.
