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)
