Ontario Mine Rescue Team

Congratulations to the members of the Vale Mine Rescue Team who competed in the recent Mine Rescue Competition Held at Sudbury's South Mine.


During the exercise five-member teams had to extinguish a fire, find missing miners – including rescuing one being crushed by a rolling garage door and another overcome by smoke – and treat their injuries.  These rescues were conducted “under oxygen” (using self-contained rebreathing apparatus) underground. They also used rope apparatus to rescue a collapsed welder from a basket at the end of an elevated crane. (from http://www.masha.on.ca)
