The Pike County Farm Bureau gave out free safety stickers and T-shirts, and all attendees could sign up for a chance to win a $25 Rural King gift card!

Day two of the event was for first responders. A full day of classroom and hands-on rescue training, instructed by the Ohio Fire Academy, was provided free of charge to eight local fire departments, including 28 first responders. All were able to receive training using the new Grain Bin Rescue tubes that were purchased by Pike County Farm Bureau and Wilber-Price/Nationwide Insurance Agency. One rescue tube will be housed at the Stockdale Fire Department and the other at the Waverly Fire Department. These are the first Grain Bin Rescue Tubes purchased for the county.
