A southern York County fire department is receiving equipment and training that could help save a farmer's life.
The Citizens Volunteer Fire Company in Fawn Grove will receive special rescue tubes and training to help prevent grain bin deaths. The company covers 32 square miles in Southern York County where there are many farms and the potential for a grain bin nightmare, according to Chief James Williams.
"Whether it falls in on them from the sides of the wall, or it acts like a quick sand and they sink," explained Chief Williams.
As a career firefighter in Maryland, he has trained for those kind of situations.
"The pressure around each square inch of your body: From your feet to your belly button or chest, there is little to no room for movement," explained Williams.
