13 Key Equipment Underground rescue operations require the use of specific and specialized equipment for mine rescue teams. Purchasing of equipment is done centrally to ensure standardization between districts and mines. All personnel trained in mine rescue must be familiar with the equipment shown to allow teams to aid and assist each other without the fear of being unable to adequately operate rescue equipment. Whenever a mine rescue operation is required, teams come from many parts of the country and continent.

14 Key Equipment Drager BG4 The Drager BG4 is a closed-circuit breathing apparatus that provides up to 4 hours of breathing air. An electronic monitoring unit allows the briefing officer to monitor team members from outside the incident.

15 Key Equipment Test-it 6100 Testers The Test-it 6100 tester measures the flow and pressure of BG4s. The tester comes in a suitcase designed for easy portability.

16 Key Equipment CAREVent DRA Automatic Rescue Ventilator The CAREvent Ventilator is lightweight and portable. The unit provides a safe and effective means of providing demand breathing or artificial ventilation to casualties suffering respiratory difficulties or cardiac arrest. The ventilator is pneumatic (i.e., no batteries required) and gives breath by breath consistency in delivered tidal volume, frequency, and flow rates.

17 Key Equipment iTX Multi-Gas Monitor The iTX multi-gas monitor is a portable, battery-powered gas detection device that can measure up to six different gases at once. The iTX can log up to 300 hours of survey data at one-minute intervals.

18 Key Equipment SSR 90 M The SSR 90 M is a self- contained, oxygen-generating rescue device for casualties during rescue operations. Mine rescue personnel carry the SSR 90 M underground and are able to provide the casualty with at least 90 minutes of breathing air. The unit weights 10.3 lbs.

19 CSE Self-Contained Self Rescue (SCSR) Breathing Apparatus SR-100 The SR-100 is worn on a belt for quick access in an emergency. It provides 60 minutes of breathable air. The SR1-00 is a chemical-based re-breather, which recycles exhaled breath, chemically removing CO 2 and replenishes it with O 2. It is used in mining, tunnelling, the armed forces, chemical plants, pulp/paper plants, water treatment plants and confined space entry situations where immediate reliable access to O 2 is needed. Weight: 2.6 kg when carried and 2.2 kg in use

20 Key Equipment GripTech SP2 Rope Rescue System The SP2 is a rope rescue system that allows rescuers to be lowered vertically or horizontally from one level to another, or to raise victims to a surface area. It requires an adequate anchor point. The system is often used for confined space rescue.

21 Key Equipment Enerpac 1250 Self-Contained Hydraulic Bolt Cutter Self-contained, high-pressure cylinder with a guillotine-type cutter and a rotating head that can achieve a shearing force of 20 tons. The cutter does not actually cut the material, rather it is sheared.

22 Key Equipment Darda Hydraulic Splitter A wedge-type splitter with a splitting force up to 350 tons at 7,100 psi. The splitter consist of two cylinders. The upper cylinder houses the piston which moves a wedge in the lower cylinder. A control valve to extend or retract the wedge is operated by a single lever. When the lever is placed in a forward position, the wedge advances and the two feathers are forced against the wall of the hole and, with 100s of tons of pressure, to tear rock or concrete apart. Depending on materials, a break may occur in seconds.

23 Key Equipment Maxiforce Lifting Bags Multi-application, portable inflation system used to lift and displace heavy rigid objects. They are designated for use in emergency situations such as structural collapse and containment, vehicular extrications, industrial entrapment, and excavation collapse. Since the air bags contain no spark-producing parts, they can be used in explosive environments.

24 Key Equipment MSA Thermal Imaging Cameras The MSA Thermal Imaging Camera is a self-contained, battery-operated unit incorporating a miniature display monitor. It is intended primarily for use as a firefighting aid, giving good quality thermal pictures through dense smoke where normal vision is impossible.

42 UBC Mine Rescue wins 1st Biannual Inter-collegiate Mine Rescue Competition 8 undergraduates in the Mining Engineering department at UBC won the first Inter-collegiate mine rescue competition hosted by Colorado School of Mines last week in Denver. 8 undergraduates in the Mining Engineering department at UBC won the first Inter-collegiate mine rescue competition hosted by Colorado School of Mines last week in Denver. The competition took place at CSM’s Edgar Mine outside of Denver. Each team was pushed to their breaking point. Real fires, smoke and patient actors were used to increase the reality of the simulation and to expose each team to a real life scenario in a controlled environment. The UBC team demonstrated incredible teamwork and communication in rescuing multiple victims and building temporary rock support that led to the capture of the title. rescue-wins-1st-biannual-inter-collegiate-mine-rescue-competition/
