The BeGrainSafe Trailer is the heart of the BeGrainSafe program and can be used to demonstrate grain entrapment and is a key component of our firefighter grain rescue training. This mobile training and demonstration unit is fully resourced for large ag shows, trade shows and fairs. It is also helpful, but not required for on-site producer workplace training.

 

How Rescue Demonstrations Work

The BeGrainSafe Trailer has a built-in silo (capacity 7,000 pounds [318 kg] of grain). Above the silo is a demonstration platform with a davit arm that can safely lower a mannequin or person into the grain. Once entrapped, a minimum of two, properly trained rescue demonstrators use grain rescue tubes in combination with an auger (both included) to safely extract the grain from around the mannequin/person until they can be freed from the grain, while a webcam, PA system and TV monitors bring the rescue to audiences below.

 

Interactive Displays

The BeGrainSafe Trailer also comes packed with interactive displays and activities, including:

  • A lung display that demonstrates how difficult it is to breathe in grain;
  • A flowing grain display that demonstrates how quickly someone can become engulfed in grain;
  • A leg display that demonstrates the force of grain on the body; and
  • Two ipads with grain safety games for adults and kids.
