Waterloo firefighters train for grain bin rescues

Posted: Updated:

The Waterloo Fire Department took part in some very important training on Wednesday. With harvest in full swing, firefighters trained for a grain bin rescue.

It took place at ECI co-op off of Broadway Street and only feet away from where an employee died while getting trapped in a grain bin. Rand Renner, 68, of Waverly died in that accident back in August. 

The grain bin rescue equipment used in Wednesday's training was donated by Farm Credit Services of America in Cedar Falls.
