|The person will be sucked into the grain|
In my last blog I talked about a grant that the Community Foundation of Morgan County received from The Smithville Charitable Foundation to purchase ResQTubes and safety training. Yesterday we brought in SATRE Safety & Technical Rescue Association George Lovell and Don were the trainers for the day. These pictures help explain what is going on with the fire fighters and rescue personal this is the part that is not finished. The fellows are not certified to rescue anyone with these ResQTubes by OSHA standards so they now need rope training and enclosed safety training As you can see there are ropes and harnesses on each person who are around the grain.
We will continue to raise money to get the training and ropes and harness to get these fire fighters certified. We are not the only occupation that uses rope rescue or confined space rescue. Companies that do plastic injection molding and company that handles flour or powders.
If you know of someone that can help us get this training or your company does such training please contact us
All is well on the farm wanting the snow to melt as we will start calving soon frozen ground is better than snow. We have been known to unroll corn stalks for bedding just being a farmer and taking care of the animals. Until we talk again take care and be safe
