Nominate your fire department to win a grain rescue tube

Partner with us

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.

Financial, equipment or training donations

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 displayed on and may be included in other promotional opportunities.

Following the conclusion of the Nominate Your Fire Department Contest (Jan 1-Apr 30), winning fire departments will be rewarded with grain entrapment rescue training and a grain 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.
