The Illinois Department of Agriculture and the State Fire Marshal are encouraging Illinois farmers to review safety practices while working in grain bins. A Purdue University study shows the U.S. documented 35 grain entrapment cases in 2020. That same year, Illinois Fire Departments responded to a nation leading 12 rescue incidents at Illinois grain bins or elevators.
