On Oct. 21, Story County Farm Bureau presented the Maxwell Fire Department with one of the grain bin rescue tubes that was donated from funds raised for the SCFB Agriculture project.
The following donors are being recognized for their contribution and support of this ongoing project: Alison Carleton, DO; Alan Knaphus; Birchmier Precision Farming Service; Chet Ryan Mortuary; Daniel Hobt, DDS; Deanna R. Ward; Farmers Cooperative; Hertz Farm Management; James and Frankee Oleson; James Wright, Sr.; Jean Saveraid (in memory of Donald Hoss); Jim Oakes Farms; Longview Farms, Steve and Laurie Henry; M. H.

Friedrich & Sons, Inc.; Roger Robinson; SKS Farms, LLC; Sauer Danfoss; Sorem Sales, Inc.; Story City Building Products; Story County Medical Center and Unity Point Clinic.
These innovative rescue tubes are a necessary piece of emergency equipment when rescuing someone in an on-farm grain bin accident, and have the capability to increase the chances of a victim’s survival when trapped in grain. It is the goal of the board to have these devices centrally located within the county and available to any rescue department needing them.
Thank you for your consideration and support of this very valuable grain bin rescue tube device. Donations are still being raised for this agricultural project for additional supplies for each fire department in our county.
