Grain Bin Safety Program

OSU Extension is hosting a free grain bin safety program in Madison County on Wednesday, August 29th at the Fairgrounds in London, Ohio. Two programs will run at the same time – one geared for on-farm safety, and another for first responders. Both will utilize a grain rescue simulator, the Grain Community Agricultural Rescue Trailer (CART). Farmers, grain industry employees, and farm families are invited to attend the on-farm safety program from 11a-1:00pm. The program for first responders (Grain Rescue Level 1, OFA Course #1954) will run from 9am-4pm.   

Lunch is included in both programs. Pre-registration is required. To register for the on-farm program, contact griffith.483@osu.edu or 740-852-0975. First responders can contact the City of London Division of Fire at 740-852-4297 to register for OFA Course #1954.
