Agriculture ranks among the most dangerous industries in the United States and it is essential that training opportunities exist for first responders or ag-industry employees to respond to an emergency. Current training sites are limited due to demand and size restrictions. This proposed site would offer a permanent grain bin and grain leg safety training site that would be accessible to both first responders and outside groups from a six state area. This site would be constructed by donations and managed by the Wayne County Fire and Rescue Association at their Wayne County Regional Training Facility in Apple Creek.
No matter your area of business, whether insurance, cooperative, feed mill, implement dealer, first responder, seed provider, non-profit organization, etc – we at Ashland, Holmes, Medina, and Wayne County Farm Bureaus see this project as an investment in your clients, members, and to agriculture at large. Will you partner with us in supporting this project?
