9) City of Hamilton joins Farm 911 initiative


The City of Hamilton announced its involvement in Farm 911, also known as The Emily Project.

The program provides civic addresses to rural properties. These addresses include a civic number, a full street name and the municipality, multiple municipal websites say.

The initiative, which launched in 2017, is named after Emily Trudeau, a seven-year-old girl who passed away in 2014 after an accident on her family’s farm in Tweed.

Emily’s mother had to flag down the first responders because they couldn’t find the entrance to the farm.
