Mine Rescue Competition Sudbury & Onaping district

Mine rescue teams from more than 20 Ontario mines tested their emergency response knowledge and skills in District Mine Rescue Competitions on May 10 to 12 in seven districts across the province. The competitions organized by Ontario Mine Rescue, part of Workplace Safety North, tested the teams’ knowledge, firefighting skills, first aid response, use of emergency equipment and decision-making ability under stress in a simulated underground emergency.

In the Sudbury & Onaping districts four teams took part in the event, representing Sudbury District were Vale West Mines and Vale East Mines.

Representing Onaping District were KGHM and Glencore Sudbury Integrated Nickel Operations
