SPENCER, IA, February 8 – MaxYield Cooperative recently made a contribution of $1000 to the Northwest Iowa Public Safety Training Center (NWIPSTC), located in Spencer, IA. The check, presented to Terry Peterson and John Conyn on February 8, will assist the organization in purchasing a 40-foot-high cube-style container to store gear and equipment.

Nicole Anderson, client business leader at MaxYield’s Everly location, is also a volunteer for NWIPSTC. “The training center not only has a very large fire training facility, it also has a live grain rescue training facility that uses an actual grain bin for the training structure to make the rescue training as realistic as possible. The center supplies all the gear used by anyone who trains at their facility.”

Anderson said the center does this so that operations can continue for any grain company or fire department while staff are training. “They do not want any one back at home to be short of supplies or safety gear while some of their team members are training. They offer day, night and weekend training opportunities. The purchase of this storage container will allow them to store gear and equipment onsite and make training much easier for everyone involved.

“They currently have raised about $1000 and the contributions from MaxYield Cooperative and the Land O’Lakes Foundation gets us very close to what we need to complete this project. We are very grateful for everyone’s support,” Anderson said.
