Representatives from area ag-related businesses hope that the Minneapolis Fire Department never has to use a piece of rescue equipment known as a RESQ-tube.

The RESQ-tube aids in rescue during a grain engulfment when a person has become entrapped in grain.  The equipment, made possible through a joint donation by MKC, Scoular Grain, Delphos Co-op and Scoular Grain was presented to the Minneapolis firemen because of their central location in Ottawa County. It will be used for emergency situations throughout the county including commercial and private farming operations.

The Minneapolis Fire Department is the third emergency response department in which MKC has assisted in the purchase of a RESQ-tube.
