Petition text

WHEREAS statistics from the Ministry of Public Security indicate an average of four farm building fires per week;
 
WHEREAS
these fires kill tens of thousands of farmed animal beings every year in Quebec;
 
WHEREAS
measures to prevent barn fires and to improve the safety of farmed animal beings are recommended by experts in the agricultural field;
 
We, the undersigned, ask the Government of Québec to protect farmed animal beings by enacting standards which prevent barn fires in farm buildings, such as:

  • the development and provision of awareness and education programs on barn fire prevention by local fire departments;
  • the requirement of firewalls for rooms which house electrical installations;
  • the storage of unused flammable material in a building separate from animal beings;
  • the strengthening of annual inspections and maintenance standards of electrical systems, heating systems, structural integrity and sprinklers;
  • the requirement of installation of a water tank and pump near buildings where animal beings are housed;
  • the requirement of installation of sprinklers as well as heat detectors in buildings where animal beings are housed, connected to a fire safety service and to the home of the owners.
