I think maybe it's just food for thought, to adapt as you all see fit.
To me a regular halter with usual style clips is not helpful, as the firefighters are not going to remove the massive glove to clip the little clip.
I think leather might be a better idea. And I think on the stall doors might be better - but then I question this too. In a smoke filled barn, who much groping around would need to be done to find them. Maybe a stand of something like this at each entrance, and then on each door, would be best.
For me personally, my horse is out 24/7, has not been in yet, but would be in several weather - so just a few nights every few years. If he is in, they would open his door and he would be out into dry paddock, and then out into large field.
I don't worry about a fire risk with my horse.
