ARTICLE DESCRIPTION:

In case of a grain emergency, the Wellman Fire Department will have access to one of the rescue devices. DuPont Pioneer partners with local fire departments throughout the state of Iowa to purchase grain rescue tubes.

“We are very appreciative for the opportunity to obtain the new grain rescue equipment and actually have had multiple chances to train our team working with the equipment this past fall,” Wellman fire chief Jeremy Peck said.

Having a rescue tube on-hand greatly increases the odds of a victim surviving a grain entrapment while also reducing the amount of time and resources needed to extract a victim safely.

“We hope it’s never used, but we’re proud of our local fire department and very excited to help this community and our firemen out in case of an accident,” Pioneer sales representative Brent Yoder said.
