Preparing Your Property

Ensure your property can be easily identified by first responders,
e.g. 911 address prominently displayed at laneway entrance.

  • Farm laneway gates/entrances should be at least 12 to 16 feet wide and height clearance of 15 ft;
  • Gates and laneway entrances from public road should be at least twice as wide with same overhead clearance to accommodate large emergency response vehicles;
  • Do not block laneways to your barn with tractors and other vehicles or equipment; and
  • Control grass and other vegetation around buildings.
