Holbrook squad receives grain rescue equipment
Members of the Holbrook Volunteer Fire Department and EMS squad gathered last week to learn the procedure to use their newly acquired grain rescue equipment. The equipment was made available to the department after applying for a grant sponsored by Farm Credit Services of America.
According to Wes Hock, training captain of the department, the system is uniquely designed to be used at any size grain storage facility. The basic concept of the unit is to push the outside slides down into the grain which builds a wall to support the grain which allows someone to go inside and rescue the person.
