nsw mines rescue challenge

This year’s NSW Mines Rescue Challenge is being hosted by Evolution Mining. The event will occur at West Wyalong NSW and be the premier mines rescue competition for NSW.

While responding to mine emergencies in fortunately an infrequent event, ensuring that site emergency response teams are equipped with the training and skills to respond in the event is of utmost importance. Competitions are a unique opportunity for mines rescue brigadesmen to develop and sharpen their emergency response skills.

With a range of high-pressure emergency scenarios, mine rescue competitions provide brigadesmen with the ability to practice their lifesaving skills and test their quick thinking while also receiving constructive feedback from technical experts.

In this year’s NSW mines rescue challenge, teams will compete in:

  • Fire;
  • Vertical Rescue/Confined Space Rescue;
  • Triage First Aid;
  • Road crash rescue;
  • Search and rescue;
  • Team theory;
  • An all in event.
