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.
