Nationwide Insurance reminds of Grain Bin Safety Week

BROWN COUNTY – Nationwide, the No. 1 farm insurer, is collaborating with industry leaders and agricultural professionals to launch its third annual safety contest as part of this year’s Grain Bin Safety Week, which runs Feb 21-27. The Nominate Your Fire Department Contest runs from Jan. 1 through May 31. It will award grain rescue tubes and hands-on training to help first responders save lives, thanks to the support of KC Supply Co., the National Education Center for Agricultural Safety and Nationwide’s other partners.

“Paul Hall and Associates is proud to support this great cause to help save lives,” said Paul Hall, Owner and CEO. “Our focus is to decrease the number of preventable injuries and deaths that occur each year in grain bins. We hope you’ll join us in getting the word out to friends and family, and that you’ll nominate your local fire department to win a grain rescue tube and rescue training.”

“Grain bin accidents can tragically impact individuals, families and entire communities,” said Brad Liggett, president of Nationwide Agribusiness. “Accident prevention means everyone working together, and Grain Bin Safety Week provides a forum for the agricultural community to help keep people safe.”

During the last two years, the national contest awarded tubes and training to 13 fire departments in 12 states. One of those winners — The Westphalia Fire Department in Kansas — used their new skills in 2015 to rescue a man who became entrapped in some grain.

In 2014, 38 documented entrapments resulted in 17 deaths, according to Purdue University. It was the highest numbers since 2010 — when at least 26 U.S. workers were killed in grain engulfments.

“That’s where Grain Bin Safety Week can help,” Liggett said. “This program brings attention to life-saving extraction methods and procedures, which can improve responder and victim safety.”
