We’re thrilled to have a couple of municipalities in Niagara join The Emily Project. Farmers and landowners in the Town of Pelham and Township of Wainfleet can now order civic addresses for their vacant farm properties. Please click on the links below to access the forms. Once you have filled out the form, bring it to the Municipal Office for processing.
Joyce Sonneveld is the first farmer in Pelham to have a FARM 911 sign installed. Beside her is Pelham Fire Prevention officer Jason Longhurst, Nadine Gill-Aarts, Ontario Federation of Agriculture Field Rep, Mayor Marvin Junkin and Murray Berin, Director for the Niagara South Federation of Agriculture.
Today marked the launch of FARM 911: The Emily Project in Prince Edward County! Vacant landowners can now apply for civic address markers for their farm fields in this municipality. All applicants requesting a sign must submit an application to the Development Services department.
Once again, we’re reminded that this truly is a community project. We are thrilled that the Atom A Tweed Hawks hockey team generously donated the remainder of their club funds to our project. What an inspiring group!
Congratulations on a great season boys & thank you for your generosity!!
FARM 911 was thrilled to receive a very generous donation of $1600 from owner and operator of Trudeau Park Lodge, Casey Trudeau, for The Emily Project.
The staff from Oakley’s Pub at Trudeau Park Lodge ran a food booth at the Hastings County Plowing Match & Farm Show at the farm of Scott and Angela Trudeau in August of 2018 and raised money in honour of Emily Trudeau’s legacy.
FARM 911 wishes to thank Casey Trudeau and all the staff from Oakley’s Pub for your kindness and generosity to our project. The money will be used on continued efforts to raise awareness of the need for civic addresses at farm field entrances.
FARM 911 celebrated the 1-year anniversary of launching our project at the Hastings County Plowing Match. We were able to celebrate an incredible milestone at the farm of Scott and Angela Trudeau in Tweed. How fitting it was, to honour and celebrate Emily’s legacy, at her family’s farm! Thank you to the Hastings County Plowing Match & Farm Show for once again allowing us to use your venue, thank you to the Tweed Fire Department for supporting the project, and of course a big thank you to the Trudeau family for being the best ambassadors of this project.
On June 12th, 2018, we celebrated the first FARM 911 sign installment in Northumberland County at the farm of Allan and Terry Carruthers. We want to thank Northumberland County for their support of this project and their efforts to have it implemented as quickly as possibly, across all 7 municipalities. Northumberland County chose to use yellow signs, as a way to let first responders know they are looking for a farming property, when responding to a call. This will help first responders find the scene of the accident, quickly and efficiently.
