International Mines Rescue Competition unites mining community in raising safety standards

From September 13 through September 15, teams engaged in a series of competitive events, including mine rescue, first aid, high angle rope rescue, firefighting, and theory assessment. During competition, participants used the Dräger UCF FireVista thermal imaging camera and PSS BG4 CCBA.

Dräger was primary sponsor of the event and Marcus Benedict, Global Trainer, Dräger Academy, Dräger Safety, served as a judge.

“Mine rescue equipment and tactics are constantly evolving so this event facilitates best practice sharing and learning among teams from many different nations in a single location,” said Kent Armstrong, Dräger Global Business Development Manager, Segment Mining at the event.

“Dräger is once again honored to be a part of it, offering education and technology innovations to help advance safety standards through friendly competition.”
