Birdseed Bin Simulation

Here is a quick training drill that ultimately gets you thinking about grain bin rescue.  Andrew Brassard did this with his crew over the holidays and we tried it yesterday.

We kidnapped my daughter’s little Dora doll who became the victim for the scenario.  All you need is a two liter bottle, some bird seed and your favorite little toy.


This is a small little prop that shows the technique for cutting grain bins to lower the grain level.  In the first example you will see the victim being swallowed up when only one triangle cut is opened up.  Then in the second example you will see the victim riding the product down because two triangle cuts were opened up simultaneously.  This will certainly get some conversation going with your crew.
