Volunteer firefighters are often a rural area’s first and only line of defense when a farmer or grain elevator worker becomes helplessly trapped in a grain bin. Unfortunately, many fire departments lack the specialized rescue techniques and equipment necessary for a successful rescue.
Locally, some departments and elevators are already equipped with grain tubes. If your department is one that is not, visit grainbinsafetyweek.com to nominate your department.
