Organizations support CASA’s grain safety program

The Canadian Agricultural Safety Association (CASA) said roughly 600 firefighters from 25 fire departments were trained how to respond to grain entrapment incidents from February through November 2022.

CASA’s BeGrainSafe program raises awareness of the risks of becoming trapped in grain, trains firefighters in rescue techniques, and makes available specialized grain rescue equipment to rural fire departments.

CASA CEO Andrea Lear said the long-term support has allowed the program to thrive.
