Grain bin rescue

This past weekend three of our firefighters took part in grain bin rescue training which was put together by the Ohio Fire Academy. This training taught our firefighters how to properly handle someone who is trapped inside of a grain bin. This typically results in those individuals becoming stuck and possibly submerged in the grain which acts like quicksand and swallows the victims. Mike Mortimer, Anthony Jones, and Chris Duncan all attended and got to spend some time both being swallowed up by the grain and helping others get out!
