Hi everyone. now for my introduction, as unexpirienced as it may be. I have been a member of the KIrkland Lake Gold Macassa Mine mine rescue team for almost a year now, we are responsible for fighting underground fires and rescue of trapped workers. its a very interesting volunteer aspect to my job as a gold miner. we use a drager air scrubber (you know, I should really know the actual name of the thing *lol*) basically a sealed breathing aparatus that cleans the CO from exhaled breath, and adds a bit of O2. can be underground in smoke for several hours in these. Im hoping to try out for the competition team next year. I judged the regionals this year and it was very intense, but I think Id be better prepared to deal with an actual emergency and more confident in my skills if I took the extra training.

Also have been a volunteer firefighter in the township of Kenogami Ontario for about 6 months now. just got my shiney new bunker gear..... ohhhhh....

So thats me. Have a great safe day!
