Once Again, Big Ag is Fighting Basic Fire Protection for Farm Animals

Despite overwhelming public support for requiring fire protection for farmed animals, the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) –“The Authority on Fire, Electrical & Building Safety” – is not hearing the cries of the millions of chickens, turkeys and other animals trapped helplessly in burning buildings from which their only escape is through asphyxiation and being burned alive.

It is unconscionable that the NFPA is siding with the U.S. agribusiness lobby claiming that installing sprinklers and smoke control devices in all newly-constructed farmed animal housing facilities is too expensive. Nothing shows more clearly the extent to which agribusiness corporations do not care about the animals at their mercy. Nothing shows more clearly how crucial it is that the NFPA mandate fire protection for farmed animals.

Imagine being trapped in a fire.

Please sign this Care2 Petition targeting the NFPA and pass it on.
