Mine rescue contests are designed to sharpen the skills and test the knowledge of team members who might be faced one day with potential mining emergencies.
Each team has to solve hypothetical problems and challenges while being timed and observed by judges.
The contests are usually held in the spring and summer in various states nationwide. The focus is on Emergency Management, which you can learn more about in CORESafety’s Module #6.
