District Mine Rescue Competition

Goderich | by Dianne┬áColgan  

Sifto Salt Mine is hosting this week's Southern Ontario mine rescue competition.

The Sifto Salt Mine is hosting this year's Southern Ontario mine rescue competition.

Compass Minerals Director of Engineering Roland Howe says teams from all over the region will come to Memorial Arena on May 5th and 6th to compete.

Howe says they put the teams through a very real situation, to simulate a mine rescue scenario.

While Howe hopes the men never have to use their experience in a real situation, it needs to be learned.

He says the winner of this competition will go on to the provincial level and compete against the winners from other districts.

Howe says it's timely for the competition to be on while the province is recognizing emergency responsiveness.
