High Loads

If the total height of your load on an unpaved road exceeds 4.2 meters, or 5.3 meters on a numbered highway or paved road, it is considered a high load. Please contact Wild Rose REA Ltd. to arrange the escort of the load through a planned route within the REA service area. Wild Rose REA Ltd. requires a minimum of 5 working days notice to schedule a high load.

Power Line Safety

With field work well under way, please be aware of the dangers above and below! Accidents involving power lines do not just damage equipment, but can also cause serious injuries. To ensure safety, double check the location of all power lines along your route when moving large farm machinery between fields or on public roadways. If in doubt when planning your route, please contact our office and we will help you plan a safe passage. Never attempt to measure the height of a power line yourself. In the event that you do make contact with a power line, stay calm and call Emergency Services (911) and the REA for assistance (1-877-749-3655).
