Hennessey and Dover Firefighters received training last Monday evening on grain entrapment.  CHS hosted the training for 25 to 30 men in the Hennessey grain elevator.    

Grain entrapment is a serious, and sometimes deadly event.  It occurs when someone gets caught in a quicksand-like situation when working in a grain bin.  A worker can be quickly sucked under the grain and become suffocated or even caught in an auger.  Photo provided.
