4.1.1 Site Planning & Maintenance
Lightning, one of the most destructive forces of nature, is particularly dangerous and costly on the farm. In a typical summer, lightning damages more than 18,000 homes and thousands of barns and miscellaneous buildings.
Tragic fires can occur anywhere, anytime. Having ready access to an ample supply of water is critical in an emergency. Large cities provide pressurized hydrants for use in fighting fires.
