If a farmer is trapped in a grain bin, Rural Firefighters Delivering Agricultural Safety and Health instructor Jim Zwaschka says the first thing to do is contact first responders. “To get responders on site, we need accurate locations and someone to meet us at the end of the driveway or crossroads so we can help.” Always remember to work in pairs when you’re around grain storage. This farm safety reminder from the Red River Farm Network is made possibly by the North Dakota Wheat Commission, the Minnesota Corn Growers Association and North Dakota Corn Utilization Council.
