The Weyauwega Area Fire District recently held training on grain-rescue safety for volunteer firefighters at CHS Larsen Cooperative in Weyauwega, Wisconsin. Harvest is well underway and farmers will soon be filling grain bins. Working in grain bins can be a dangerous activity. Thus it's important to be prepared for any unforeseen emergencies during harvest and tp have the proper training and equipment. During training, firefighters practiced a few rescue scenarios. They used grain-rescue equipment, including the Great Wall of Rescue, ropes and harnesses, which they were able to purchase in 2015 with a CHS safety grant. They partially buried a volunteer firefighter in a load of corn at the mill and then used the Great Wall of Rescue, which acts as a cofferdam, to properly rescue a victim out of loose grain. There were about 20 volunteer firefighters in attendance.
