Grain Bin Rescue Training and equipment is essential for rural Fire Departments and First Responders across the nation. We are very excited to announce that during our Grain Bin Safety Campaign this fall we were able to raise over $60,000 in funds to contribute to responder teams across the nation! Special Thank to Kensington Fire Department for letting me tag and long and document the rescue training equipment in use.

Zach Johnson, the “Millennial Farmer” is a 5th-generation farmer who’s spent his life growing, working, and learning on his family’s farm. His wit and dry sense of humor appeal to children and adults alike. A product of the millennial generation, his appreciation of new technology blends with his old-fashioned work ethic, and he offers a unique ability to deliver his message in a way that resonates with lifelong farmers as well as those with no knowledge of agriculture.
With growing consumer awareness about where their food comes from, Zach has identified the need for an independent voice from the front lines of agriculture. Zach actively promotes agriculture by sharing his day-to-day experiences in the agriculture world while providing farmer-to-farmer education to help facilitate a collaborative conversation between farmers and the public.

    Have they tried to "SWIM" out of the Corn by getting the Corn away from the upper body slowly first, then Legs out by turning the Shoes in a twisting motion to allow the Corn to settle under the Shoes slowly, pulling up one Shoe at a time and then bending the Core of the body at the waist spreading most of weight on a much larger surface area and then do a Frog paddle to the ladder?
    They could also just have a Chain, Rope or Strap hanging from the Roof to pull themselves up.

    Sadly, the deaths do not occur partially submerged. Crust breaks, and they are buried over their heads. Most of the time, they are alone. And die that way.

    My daughter is subscribed to MF and told me about this video. It was very interesting. My grandfather was a dairy farmer in Woodville, WI, so I was interested in all the VFWs that got help. My daughter got a laugh when she discovered you all (or whomever) misspelled Menomonie WI. Ends with NIE, not MIE. Unless there is a town with ALMOST the identical name. (Woodville is just west of Menomonie on 94)

    I’m glad you are showing this video. I was 14 working at a farm just outside of Cedar Rapids, IA and the farmer had me go in the grain bin to push the corn to the side of the bin as it was being topped off. I could barely breath and I started sinking fast. I was in up to grain to my chest and the farmer and his son pulled me out. I was nearly unconscious. I never got in the grain bin again. Plus, my dad never let me work with that farmer again. Thank you for showing how serious this can be.

    All joking aside, that was amazing. Scary shit. I've been in a "shit lagoon" in the winter and thought was going to sink to my death. But, staying calm and remembering my train on how to escape quicksand saved my butt. I loved how those guys would chuckle and laugh, but all of it was nervous laughter and you could tell they really, deep down, took it incredibly seriously and were that much more equipped and learned how to save a life. Great job!!!

    In the European Alps these bins are not that often used for grain, because there are not that many farms producing grain, because it is to steap for fields. So they are using similar bins to produce silage for their cattle. People don't die there because they are burried below the chaff and hay; they die because of the CO2 and CO, which is produced during the process of becoming silage. I guess, that is way more dangerous, because you cannot see or smell the danger. It still kills people after all these years.

    DALE THANK YOU for training these men. When I first started watching farming with Cole the CornStar when he was just finishing school...he was in the grain shed on the corn and I asked what if there was an avalanche and he got buried...well these guys are the answer. Training maybe "relaxed and friendly" but from experience in public order way back in the day...👮‍♂️ slow and easy gets it in your head for when the big day comes. Randy is a BIG man and it was good to use him to get someone through a small gate... It must be really really difficult and dead easy to injure them badly.
    To be inside a grain silo must be scary... Hot, not much light, danger of sinking or avalanche, unconscious victim, performing CPR, watching your assienda and each other.. WHAOW these guys have Ball must be akin to sinking in a swamp or quicksand or drowning... Think the farmers who go in grain bins should have radios or attachments at the minimum,,, some kind of high decibel screaming emergency device ..
    My imagination went in overdrive watching thankyou for this demonstratuon of VOLUNTEER rescue men.. Keep safe your Aristotles.
    UgZ. 💜😊. x
    Any chance of seeing fire engines in action. How do your get from one place to another? Water supplies,,,? What's the comms like. What if it's a biggun.. If you can like ..even if your could only get Dale to give a talk and maybe Randy and the guys show us the equipment..I mean out in the farms everything's made from wood mostly... Next- paramedics HOW do the Farm community watch their kiboos ???
    Mind how you go. 💜

    Just an idea but if fire fighters had snow shoes minus the holes they normally have in them they would not sink into the grain as much, just a thought anyway should work the same way as the kneeling pads they use only attached to their feet

    As important as the grain bin rescue is, one thing that really stuck out to me is the people on the outside of the bin. Here in their mock scenario there was a large platform to stand on. Very few bins would have that kind of room to stand on. Reality is most bins will have a ladder on the outside, with no safety cage. In the event the individual that was trapped is unconscious an needs to removed with a body board through the man-hole opening, that aspect needs to be addressed to get the patient safely back to the ground.
