Gavilon Grain gave a tour of their facility to local fire departments on Wednesday, August 2. Supervisor Jason Lewis welcomed just over 20 firemen from the Rock Port, Watson and Hamburg fire departments. Jason started with a meeting in the main office giving an overview of the facilities, talking about the equipment and safety gear that was on hand, and where the gear is located. He reviewed the procedures manual before taking everyone on a tour of the elevator. Key locations for shut offs, whether it be electricity or gas, were pointed out along the tour in the event there ever was a fire or entrapment.
