Fire Safety in Farming & Agriculture
Farming today can involve a wide range of fire risks, which can be hard to protect against with traditional extinguishers due to their size and the fact you need to know what extinguisher works on what fires, otherwise you could be putting yourself in harm’s way, and let’s not forget, they all need yearly servicing to ensure they are fit for purpose if they are called to action, and if equipment/machine is out of action this could lead to loss of revenue, in 2019 insurers paid out £19 million on clams relating to these issues.
The Fire Safety Stick is the ideal solution, not only is it environmentally friendly and causes no harm to machinery, livestock, humans, Fss is small and light enough to be held in one hand, only weighing in at 210g, it doesn’t need any yearly servicing and it works on all major fire types, and with a shelf life of 15 years it’s a remarkable solution to replace traditional extinguishers.in the farming Industry
Overloaded battery terminals are behind an increasing number of tractor fires, an investigation of almost 1,000 carried out by rural insurer NFU Mutual has concluded. In 2019, the insurer paid out almost £19 million on claims relating to the issue. A common factor in modern tractors was electrical accessories wired directly to the tractor battery cables.
For farmers, equipment is key, and a machine being out of action not only is unproductive but can cause loss of revenue
Traditionally you would use a water or foam extinguisher for fires involving wood, hay or straw. And a dry powder extinguisher for fires that involve flammable liquids such as gas or fuel, both requiring yearly servicing and maintenance. A Fire Safety Stick is an all in one solution that covers all major fire classes and no servicing required.
Know that despite the rock n rolls of farm life, unlike traditional extinguishers the fire safety stick has durability like no other, you can drop it, drill it, cut it and still extinguish it.

“This was just what I was looking for – a fire extinguisher that is light, effective and does not leave a mess. I hope I never have to use it but I am very glad to have one in the Caterham and another in our Airstream trailer.”
“Nice & lightweight & easy to fit in space. Hopefully it will work if it’s ever needed, with luck I won’t be finding out!”
