THE EMILY PROJECT AIMS TO ENSURE FARM FIELDS ARE GIVEN 911 SIGNS

The Township of Admaston-Bromley is aboard with the Emily Project, a potentially life-saving initiative to ensure that all vacant fields are assigned a 911 identification number. "Farm 911" is nicknamed The Emily Project in memory of seven year-old Emily Trudeau, who lost her life in 2014 in part due to having no identification address number on the field where she perished. Admaston-Bromley Township Works Manager Chris Konupaski says the system first came to Renfrew County back in 1994, but still not all rural property entrances have the civic address signage and there are sometimes delays in emergency response time as a result. Konupaski tells us the twenty-seven dollars the 911 sign will cost could be the best investment you can make. The Works Manager says one should call him at 613-432-2885 to book an appointment at your property site, as measurements must be taken at the field's location, then entered in the Renfrew County database. While it is the County that assigns the 911 number, it is an Admaston-Bromley worker that will deliver and install it.   You may also get in touch with Chris at info@admastonbromley.com
