PMI’s Grain Evacuation Tool-the GET Coffer Dam Solution-is a rescue solution made up of six interlocking aluminum panels used to form a circle and isolate entrapped persons from the grain surrounding them. Included in the solution is the Grain Portr-a tool used to quickly remove the grain inside the GET, thereby freeing the subject from the grain. Also included are probe poles that make a target ring surrounding the subject to accurately position the GET panels. The interlocking panels fit through the smaller openings found in the top of older-style grain bins. The Grain Portr grain removal device has two foot straps to drive the panels into the grain.
