Updates – September 2020

When on-campus activities slowed down this past spring due to the coronavirus, we made some leeway work on our latest project. This trailer is being built to show the implications of grain entrapment through a hands-on approach. (Remember, grain entrapment is not being able to escape grain without help, grain engulfment is a submersion of the full body under the grain.) Featuring a grain bin, two augers, a grain holding bin, and a platform viewing deck, we aim to show students and industry professionals alike the dangers of a grain entrapment. A future goal of ours is to hopefully be able to take this trailer across the state so that firefighters and other rescue personnel can be trained on grain rescue techniques.
