Safety first for farmers
FARMERS from Argyll joined others from the Forth and Clyde regions for a free farm fire safety and crime prevention event.
The informal event was organised jointly by NFU Scotland, Police Scotland, the Scottish Fire and Rescue Service, Forestry Commission Scotland and Scottish Land and Estates, and provided a key opportunity for farmers to discuss their rural crime and fire-related issues.
Taking place at Luss Estates on Friday June 17, the event included practical demonstrations on se- curity systems, crime prevention equipment and fire safety techniques.
Tom French, NFU Scotland’s regional chairman for Forth and Clyde, said: ‘NFU Scotland continues to work with partner agencies to provide farmers with practical advice on protecting their property. This event is the latest in a series of similar events being organised by the union across the country.
‘The day was well attended by farmers and others within the industry, and covered a wide range of rural issues.’
