Grain Bin Safety
Equipment Training Event
Gerber Insurance & Financial Services, in partnership with Nationwide Insurance, has awarded and donated a grain bin rescue tube to the Jefferson Township Fire department. This equipment will be used in the eastern part of Ross County and the surrounding areas.
Agriculture has some of the highest rates of preventable fatal work injuries among major industry sectors, according to the National Safety Council. Without grain specific devices, firefighters use plywood, backboards, or other tools they may have available – thus the need for the grain bin safety tube.
Having this instrumental piece of grain bin safety equipment is only half of the solution. This event will provide life-saving training that is essential for turning recoveries into successful rescues.
We hope you’ll join us by attending this safety training event.
