Student Fee

Class specific

Course Description

This course is designed for emergency first responders.  First responders are those who respond in the event of a 911 emergency response.  The scope of this course is to educate students about grain storage facility types, their construction, and operating features. OSHA regulations, physical-environmental hazards and potential rescue resources are identified to ensure the response falls within the requirements minimizing fire department civil or criminal liability. Scene management and safety are discussed in conjunction with locating, securing, packaging, and moving the victim. Improvised mechanical advantage systems, high point anchors, and retrieval systems will be demonstrated. The class also covers safe patient assessment, stabilization, protection and packaging, plus removal as a part of rescue simulations. Various cutting tools are used in a simulated rescue to assist in the removal of grain from the system. Upon completion of this class the student will possess the ability to function as a member of a rescue team conducting rescue and entry operations at a grain storage facility.  Note: this course is specifically designed and targeted only for entry into grain bins.  Training and entry into other confined spaces are covered in other courses.
