Coggon Fire Department Awarded Grain Bin Rescue Equipment

The Coggon Fire Department is getting some help.

Nationwide has announced its awarding 48 fire departments across the country with life-saving grain rescue tubes and training to help prevent grain entrapment deaths in rural communities.

Nationwide has supplied these rescue resources to two hundred fire departments across the country since 2014 as part of its Grain Bin Safety advocacy campaign, with four successful rescues reported since that time.

The grain rescue tube and training will be delivered to the Coggon Fire Department/Linn County District 7 sometime this year.
