PGAg and CoBanks "Share Success Program" gives the Lisbon Fire Department a donation

December 11, 2017

Plains Grain and Agronomy along with Cobank’s sharing success program, a fund that matches the contributions of CoBank’s Customers to the charities of their choice, is pleased to present Lisbon Fire Department a donation of $8,000 to go towards the purchase of additional equipment to help perform grain bin extrication tasks.

The Lisbon Fire Department has secured a grant for the purchase of a grain bin tube and the trailer to store/haul the grain bin extrication equipment, but needed additional equipment to perform the rescue safely and expeditiously to increase the chance of survival for the victim and to ensure no injures to the rescuers.

Plains Grain and Agronomy, LLC in October provided the Lisbon Fire Department our Lisbon grain location for training, to help with grain bin extrication training.
