A Tri-State fire station getting some new equipment which could mean the difference between life and death for farmers.

Marrs Township Fire Chief Andy Logan says he expects to receive grain bin rescue equipment on Friday. In the past, Marrs Township had to rely on other fire departments to rescue people from a grain bin.

When a man was rescued from a grain bin on March 28, the Black Township Fire Department had to be called in for help.

Chief Logan says the cost for the new equipment is around $4,000 which is funded by the Marrs Township trustee.
