Here at CMB Architecture, April is Barn Fire Safety month. After years of touring, remodeling, and designing equestrian projects, we’ve come to realize that fire safety is often a critically overlooked factor in both new and existing facilities. The National Fire Protection Agency reports that between 2006-2010, over 800 structure fires occurred in barns each year, causing human casualties, equine fatalities, and tens of millions of dollars in property damage.
In order to help combat that statistic, we’ve decided to do our part to raise awareness. All throughout the month of April, we’ll be posting information, checklists, videos, and other resources to help owners and facility managers keep their barns safe. However, if you’d prefer to have the content sent directly to your inbox, please sign up for our mailing list below. It will also provide a link to the full NFPA report on barn structure fires.
If you’re interested in the report but would prefer not to sign up, the download is also available here.
