SGT. BLUFF FIRE CHIEF ANTHONY GAUL WAS ONE OF THE INSTRUCTORS FOR THE HIGH SCHOOL STUDENTS WHO PUT THEIR RESCUE SKILLS TO THE TEST IN A REALISTIC GRAIN BIN ENTRAPMENT SITUATION:

INSTRUCTORS FROM THE NATIONAL EDUCATION CENTER FOR AGRICULTURAL SAFETY BROUGHT A TRAILER WITH A GRAIN BIN SIMULATOR THAT A STUDENT VOLUNTEER BECAME “TRAPPED” IN.

GAUL SAYS OTHER STUDENTS IN TURNOUT GEAR THEN HAD TO RESCUE THEIR CLASSMATE USING A GRAIN AUGER AND OTHER TOOLS:

GRAINBIN2 OC………NEED TO BE. :20

TWO OF THE STUDENTS ARE ALREADY SERVING ON FIRE DEPARTMENTS IN SGT. BLUFF AND NORTH SIOUX CITY.

CANADY SAYS THE EXPERIENCE AND CLASS TRAINING HE IS TAKING HAS SPARKED HIS INTEREST IN BECOMING A FIREFIGHTER, AND HE PLANS TO CONTINUE HIS TRAINING AT A LOCAL COMMUNITY COLLEGE:
