Mine rescuers pass the test in Sudbury
from The Sudbury Star
Danny Taillefer hopes his fellow mine rescuers don't have to test their skills in real life, but he's glad to know they'll be well prepared for a real emergency. Taillefer, a mine rescue officer from Timmins, served as judge for the Ontario Mine Rescue district competitions held at McClelland Arena in Copper Cliff, and came away impressed. "Everybody has performed extremely well," Taillefer said, after three teams had already run through rescue scenarios. "They're all going to be debriefed after and everybody makes mistakes, but at the end of the day, had this been a real emergency, they would all have been successful."
