Grain Bin Rescue – #GBSW14

In recognition of Grain Bin Safety Week, Nationwide Agribusiness has partnered with the National Education Center for Agricultural Safety (NECAS) to provide grain entrapment rescue training to one (1) nominated fire department or emergency rescue squad. The winning department also receives a rescue tube valued at $2,600, courtesy of KC Supply.

NECAS will travel with its simulator and rescue tube to the winner’s location to conduct the one-day, six-hour training session. The classroom portion of the training takes place at the fire station, but the simulator demonstration can occur at the nominator’s farm or grain facility upon request. This way, your local fire rescue can become more familiar with your operation and NECAS can have easier access to the grain necessary to conduct the demonstration.

The contest begins on Jan 1, 2014 at 8 a.m. CT and ends April 30, 2014 at 8 a.m. CT.

To enter, provide your name, mailing and email address, the name and address of your local fire department or emergency rescue team, and one page describing how the local fire department or rescue team and rural community would benefit from grain entrapment training and rescue tube, and how they plan to share the tube and training with nearby departments.

Completed nominations can be emailed to or mailed to: NECAS Grain Bin Safety Ag Contest 8342 NICC Dr. Peosta, IA 52068
