The Grain Bin Rescue Workshop held on Saturday, April 22, at 9:00am is open to the public. Taught by the OSU Ag Safety Program, the workshop is designed to teach farmers, farm families and community members about the hazards associated with stored grain. At the conclusion of the classroom section, participants will have the opportunity to view the Grain Comprehensive Agriculture Rescue Trailer (CART), ask questions and stay to watch emergency personnel complete their hands-on training. Community participants are not allowed to participate in the actual rescue-training portion.
Training designed for emergency personnel, offered to 25 participants each day, will be held on April 22 & 23, from 8:00am - 4:00pm. Participants will take a six-hour Ohio Fire Academy (OFA) course (#1954) to learn and practice grain bin rescue techniques with the CART. The Stonelick and Jackson Township and Fayetteville Fire Departments have collaborated with OSU Extension Clermont County to offer this program to local firefighters and first responders in Clermont County and the surrounding area.
