Nationwide is teaming up with National Education Center for Agricultural Safety and others partnering to hold the Nominate Your Fire Department as part of Nationwide’s annual Grain Bin Safety Week Feb. 21 to 27.

To enter the contest, fire department must describe how the department or emergency response team and its rural community would benefit from grain rescue tubes and grain rescue training.
