The National Safety Council consistently ranks agriculture as one of the three most hazardous occupations in the United States. A recent survey by the USDA's National Agriculture Statistics Service showed 200,000 work-related injuries occur on U.S. farms annually. And farm family members account for 65% of those injuries.
It should be no surprise that the success of all types of agriculture is tied to the level of safety on the farm. Which is why, in addition to our competitive rates, we offer a variety of discounts to make your insurance even more affordable so that we can ensure a sustainable future for Indiana agriculture.
Fire Extinguisher Program:
In 2010, Indiana Farm Bureau Insurance began our Fire Extinguisher Program as part of our Farm Safety Program.
Indiana Farm Bureau Insurance assists members in protecting farm equipment and agricultural buildings from loss by fire by providing, at no cost to the eligible client, one 10-pound ABC fire extinguisher for each farm we insure.
Eligible farm clients will be contacted by Indiana Farm Bureau Insurance Farm/Crop/Commercial Specialists to schedule the installation of the fire extinguisher. Members are entitled to one recharged 10-pound ABC fire extinguisher if the one already issued is used to extinguish a fire.
Eligible farm equipment and buildings:
Self-propelled grain combines and high-risk farm buildings (ex: farm shops, livestock confinement buildings, etc.).
If your fire extinguisher has been used to extinguish a fire, please return it to your county Indiana Farm Bureau Insurance office. We will also replace any fire extinguisher unit found to be defective.
If you have any questions about this program, please contact the your local agent.
