February 21-27 is Grain Bin Safety Week.
Grain Bin Safety Week is promoted to raise awareness about grain bin dangers and provide education and best practices to reduce the number of preventable injuries and deaths associated with grain handling and storage.
Nominate your fire department to win a grain bin rescue tube
“Nationwide has partnered with the National Education Center for Agricultural Safety (NECAS), KC Supply and others to award emergency first responders with grain rescue tubes and hands-on rescue training to help save lives.
“The Nominate Your Fire Department Contest awards grain rescue tubes and hands-on training to help first responders save lives. Nominations are accepted from the general public as well as from fire fighters who wish to nominate their own fire department. The deadline to submit a nomination is April 30, 2021.”
