Nyrstar, Quinsam mines big winners in rescue competition

After an intense and energetic competition, seven dedicated teams claimed victory last weekend at the 59th annual Mine Rescue and First Aid Competition in Smithers. Mine enthusiasts, family and friends gathered in Smithers on Saturday to watch nine mine rescue and eight first aid teams challenged by rope rescue rigging, complex industrial hazards and dynamic smoke and fire tasks. Teams are comprised of those working at B.C. mines with backgrounds in firefighting, emergency response and high-angle rescue, and often also lend their rescue expertise to their local communities. The competition is divided into three categories: Surface, Underground and Three Person First Aid and features life-like simulations that test skills in firefighting, first aid, rope rescue, extrication and general mine rescue knowledge. T h e Mu t u a l A i d Scramble returned for its second year as a part of the competition, mixing the teams in a trial designed to test teamwork and co-operation. The ability to adapt to working together is important if mining emergency responders are called to provide a multiple resource rescue effort. The winning team captained by Delainy Barry, Peace River Coal,
