Webinar Description:
Join VRS™ by PMI Program Manager Tom Wood for this one hour webinar addressing the challenges of accessing and rescuing someone trapped in a grain storage bin.

Rural rescuers are witnessing an alarming trend on commercial farms; a dramatic increase in the number of grain bin entrapments. Statistics from the Bureau of Labor Statistics show that nearly half of all grain bin entrapments result in fatalities. In 2010, nearly thirty people lost their lives in grain bins.

Some of the latest techniques and PMI equipment (such as the TerrAdaptor™ used as a portable high directional anchor) for Grain Bin Rescue will be discussed, as well as the many objective dangers facing rescuers attempting to access and rescue a trapped worker.
