Owners of AgMark LLC have donated a set of grain engulfment rescue panels to the Concordia Fire Department.

A panel set is a rescue tool made of aluminum sections that slide into the grain around the engulfed person, then latch together forming a rescue wall. The grain can then be removed around the victim, eventually allowing him to be pulled to safety.

“We hope they will never be used, except for training purposes,” said David Edwards, Farmway safety director.
