Fire is an ever-present concern for stable owners. Contact your local fire department to do a walkthrough of your property and provide recommendations for a pre-plan. There are many steps that can be taken to establish good fire prevention practices.

The following are an excellent starting point:

- 10 pound (minimum) ABC fire extinguishers are at   each exit and in all mechanical and feed rooms

- Fire safety plan (pre-plan) is in a locked box and
  the fire department has a copy

- Electrical wire is encased in non-corrosive conduit

- Hay and bedding are stored in a separate building at   least 100 feet from the stable
