Vacant Lot 911 Signs
Accidents can happen anywhere. In the event of an emergency, Farm 911 signs assist First Responders in locating individuals on vacant agricultural land who require emergency assistance in a timely manner. The Farm 911 Emily Project is a program which aims to assign civic addresses to existing access points on both vacant agricultural and rural lands. Individuals applying for a 911 sign will receive a yellow Farm 911 sign for easy identification by emergency services. This is so first responders are aware the incident they are called to is not tied to a home or farm building.
Farm 911 – Emily Project is inspired by a young girl named Emily Trudeau, who tragically died after being involved in an on-farm accident in Hastings County, Ontario. At that time, first responders had difficulty finding her on-farm location due to a lack of 911 signage at the farm’s entrance. To help prevent future tragedies, the Farm 911 Emily Project was created to encourage additional signage at the entrances of vacant farm fields.
