Until farmers and other grain handlers can be convinced to stop entering grain bins, emergency first responders need to be prepared to help save lives. We welcome your partnership to help make grain rescue tubes and grain rescue training available to emergency personnel.
We're working hard to raise awareness and equip fire departments across the country with specialized rescue techniques and equipment to help save lives. If you would like to join our mission, we will accept donations in the form of grain rescue rubes, rescue training or a financial contribution.
|Five-alarm:||$10,000 or more|
|Four-alarm:||$7,500 - $9,999|
|Three-alarm:||$5,000 - $7,499|
|Two-alarm:||$2,500 - $4,999|
|One-alarm:||$1,000 - $2,499|
All donations will help us meet our goal. Contributors of $1,000 or more will be prominently promoted on grainbinsafetyweek.com, social media, media releases and other promotional opportunities.
Following the conclusion of the Nominate Your Fire Department Contest (Jan. 1 – May 31, 2017), winning fire departments will be rewarded with grain entrapment rescue training and a grain bin rescue tube. The total number of winners and prizes rely on the donations and generosity of our partners.
Providing first responders with necessary equipment and training is no small task. We appreciate your dedication to the health and safety of America’s rural community.
If you’re interested in learning how your contribution can help save lives, please contact Doug Becker at (515) 508-5590 or via email.
All cash contributions help purchase grain bin tubes and/or training. All donations are managed through the National Education Center for Agricultural Safety (NECAS), a 501(c)(3) non-profit.
