CROSSVILLE, Ill. — Six fire departments in White County, Ill., are the recipients of a lifesaving device that can be used to rescue workers entrapped in grain.
The GSI RES-Q-Tubes were donated to the fire departments by the White County Farm Bureau Foundation following a six-month fundraising drive.
Earlier this month, volunteers from the Carmi Fire Department, Carmi Emergency Management Agency, Carmi Ambulance Service, Crossville Fire, Little Wabash Fire and Norris City Fire Department participated in a grain engulfment training session held at the Lamont Farms near Crossville, Ill.
