“iPhone App Helps Illinois Farm Workers To Locate Nearest Grain Rescue Tube”

More than 900 grain bin-related deaths have occurred in the U.S. since 1964, but now there’s an app to help lessen that number, according to Illinois Corn.

The Illinois Grain Rescue Tube Locator app, built by the Illinois Corn Marketing Board and the Grain and Feed Association of Illinois, was designed as a way for rescue workers to more easily locate farmers who were stuck in grain bins. The app is powered by GPS technology and allows for rescue crews to get to the farmer more quickly than in the past.

As of now, the free app has a map for Illinois grain rescue tubes. In the future, other states may design similar databases.
