The young people of North Lambton County were devastated when a local teen lost her life by suffocating in a grain bin.  Local fire department volunteers were unable to save the girl. The Lambton 4-H Farm Safety Club resolved to help prevent such a tragedy from happening again in their community. The group set about devising and building a grain extrication tool. The new, easy-to-use rescue tool works so well that it has been provided to five local fire departments and grain facilities, who were impressed with its demonstration. The 4-H club is being recognized for its innovative idea, as the tool holds the potential to save lives if it is processed through the Canadian Safety Association approvals for broader use.
