The owners of AgMark LLC donated the Concordia Fire Department a set of Grain Engulfment Rescue Panels. 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.
