Fire safety on equine properties by Jim Green, animal rescue specialist.
Did You Know?
Horses may not be viable within four minutes of a fire starting in a building. It may take 20 minutes for a fire engine to arrive at an isolated farm. Prevention and preparation is vital.
Fire safety legislation came into force in October 2006 which placed responsibility for fire safety on the owner of premises and requires that they should carry out a risk assessment. Yard owners are responsible for the safety of everybody who works, visits or has cause to be on the property. Not complying with the fire safety law may lead to prosecution.
