Farm Credit donates bin safety equipment
Posted 8/22/16 (Mon)
The Wishek Fire Department received potentially life-saving grain bin rescue equipment and training last week, with the help of a donation from Farm Credit Services of Mandan.
The department received a 10-panel system manufactured by Minnesota-based Outstate Data. The equipment is designed to be used by rescuers specifically for grain bin entrapments.
Wishek and Bowman are the two rural volunteer fire departments to receive grain bin rescue equipment and training this year as part of Harvest Days at Farm Credit Services.
