Event Description

** PLEASE NOTE THE FOLLOWING COURSE IF OFFERED ON TWO DATES IN MARCH (dates are independent, the same material will be offered on both days)

Barn fires cost the Ontario agriculture industry millions of dollars per year.  The loss of livestock can be especially traumatic for the farm family and for first responders that attend the scene.  It is estimated that 40% of the fires begin with electrical failure. OMAFRA’s Jacqui Empson Laporte will demonstrate a FLIR camera that fits on your smartphone to help you identify electrical problems BEFORE they turn into something tragic. She will also explain the camera lending program that helps people use the technology, and explain how it fits with more detailed inspections by insurance companies.  John Van de Vegte, OMAFRA, will explain how fires start and how preventative maintenance on the electrical system in your barn can help reduce your risk of fire.

When?      Mon. Mar. 6, & Tues. Mar. 21, 2017

                 1:00 to 3:30 pm

Cost? $10.00 per person
