RealAgriculture is partnering with the Canadian Agriculture Safety Association to raise money to build a grain entrapment training program. Moving grain can entrap a grown adult in less than 25 seconds. In 2015, there were seven grain entrapment fatalities—four of those were children. First responders and farmers need to be properly trained on how to save a person that is trapped in grain. It is not as simple as grabbing their arms and pulling them out.
