RE: 150 Standard for Fire & Life Safety in Animal Housing Facilities
Please amend your 150 Standard for Fire & Life Safety in Animal Housing Facilities to require sprinklers and smoke detection in all newly constructed facilities holding “Category B” animals.
Our Foundation has been monitoring the callous and inhumane treatment of farmed animals for many years, and doing whatever we can to end the horrible treatment of the animals. This includes providing veterinary care and safe and adequate living conditions, which agribusiness has opposed while citing that it is less expensive to let animals suffer and die than to provide proper care and protection.
Please help end this irresponsible attitude toward raising animals, and amend your 150 Standard to protect the animals. Burning to death is a horrible way to die.
