Beachner Grain, in conjunction with Berkley Agribusiness Insurance, donated a grain rescue tube to the Chanute Fire Department. From left to right are Brent Bayliff with Beachner, Firefighter Matt Byerley, Capt. Dale Lowry and Dale Ekdahl with Outstate Data, who delivered the tube and provided training on its use. If a victim falls into a grain bin and becomes trapped, the tube would be placed around him so more grain does not fall into the space while rescuers dig the victim out. It is the only grain tube CFD has, but it is interoperable with other tubes in the area and will respond as a deployable asset on Chanute’s regional rescue truck.
