About the event

Grain Bin Rescue

This course is specifically designed for emergency responders who may respond to a person or persons trapped in a grain bin or at a grain handling or storage facility.  This course will educate students about grain storage facility types, operating features, construction and hazards to responders. Physical/environmental hazards and potential rescue resources are identified and targeted specifically for entry into grain bins. Scene management and safety are discussed along with locating, securing, packaging, and moving the victim. Improvised mechanical advantage systems, high point anchors, and retrieval systems will be demonstrated and implemented. This class takes a deep dive into safe patient assessment, stabilization, protection/packaging, and removal as a part of rescue simulations. Upon completion of this course the student will possess the specialized knowledge to function as a member of a grain rescue team conducting rescue and entry operations at a grain storage facility.
