With harvest approaching, it’s important for farmers to once again be thinking about grain bin safety. The Vermilion County Farm Bureau Young Leaders Committee is hosting a Grain Bin Safety Demonstration on Thursday, August 9, 2018 at the Georgetown Fair. It will begin after the livestock auction at approximately 4:00 pm.
Staff with the Illinois Fire Service Institute will give a demonstration on harness safety systems that can be used in grain bins. They’ll also talk about other factors that people working around grain equipment need to be aware of. The program should last 30-40 minutes.
