KU Mobile Grain Rescue Training Trailer

University of Kansas mobile training lab delivers new rescue course

Monday, January 21, 2013

KU on YouTube - The Kansas Fire & Rescue Training Institute (KF&RTI) at University of Kansas Continuing Education showcases its mobile grain engulfment rescue trailer.

The new piece of customized equipment was built to simulate grain entrapment and includes a grain bin, hopper and an assortment of rescue tools and equipment designed to help rescue victims from potentially perilous situations. It is the key component of a new traveling rescue-training course offered by KF&RTI statewide.

The Kansas Fire & Rescue Training Institute, headquartered in Lawrence, provides training for firefighters in Kansas communities. The Institute is a dynamic organization providing training services through a "Mobile Fire Academy" concept, designed to accommodate local needs through training delivered anywhere in Kansas. The Institute trains thousands of firefighters each year.

The KF&RTI is now taking requests for grain engulfment rescue training. To arrange for training in your community, contact the KF&RTI at 866-804-8844 or kufire@ku.edu. For more information visit the website: www.continuinged.ku.edu/fire
