2019 Gastech Victorian Mines Rescue Competition
October 20 - October 22
The 2019 Gastech Victorian Mine Rescue Competition (VMRC) is a mines rescue and emergency response capacity building exercise.
This event will test theory, fire fighting skills, search and rescue, first aid, rope rescue, breathing apparatus and feature the Spence Herd Challenge.
From humble beginnings 20 years ago, the VMRC has emerged as a well-respected, highly competitive and truly national event.
The sharing of knowledge and experience enables mine rescue personnel to be called upon not only in their own operations but operations throughout the state and across the country. Having a significant pool of highly trained rescue personnel across Australia contributes greatly to the minerals industry’s commitment to zero harm.
The VMRC has been running since 1993 and sees mines rescue and emergency response teams from mine sites around Victoria and Australia compete against each other in a variety of simulated emergency situations to put their skills to the test, and share their extensive knowledge with each other.
The VMRC attracts teams from all over Australia and is a highly regarded national event.
The 2019 VMRC will be held in the Latrobe Valley at Energy Australia’s Yallourn mine on October 20 – 22.
