The Barn Fire Prevention Task Force, a sub-committee of the VT Rural Fire Protection Task Force,
has been established to identify ways that we can work to reduce and prevent future barn fires. Our working
committee consists of farmers, firefighters, and staff from the Northern Vermont Resource Conservation &
Development Council, University of Vermont Extension, Co-op Insurance Company, FireProTec Incorporated, Senator
Bernie Sanders' office, the Vermont Division of Fire Safety and the Vermont Department of Labor.
Recent projects include development and distribution of educational information kits in both
Spanish and English; Filming 3 “Across the Fence” television programs on barn fire prevention and finding
resources to establish a fire extinguisher cost-share program for barn owners.
