Alden Team Win US National Championship in Mine Rescue/First-Aid Combination

The Alden Resources Mine Rescue Team won top honor at the National Mine Rescue Contest held in Beckley, West Virgina during September 2017 in the Combination Mine Rescue/First-Aid Events.

 

The team competed against the best 61 teams in the US in the 3 Day competition.

The first day consisted of a simulated mining accident in which multiple victims were treated for their injuries.

Days two and three were mock mine disasters in which the team had to explore simulated underground mines in search of survivors bringing them to safety.

 

The teams are judged on correct procedures, mapping, communication and efficiency. Alden Resources Team has once again proved to be the best in the US finishing with the best score.
