Congratulations to the Emergency Response Teams at Esterhazy K1 & K2
Procon would like to congratulate the members of the Esterhazy K1 & K2 Emergency Response Teams that competed at the 48th Annual Emergency Response/Mine Rescue Skills Competition in Saskatoon on June 4, 2016. The K2 team finished as Overall Runner Up at the Underground Events, with wins in the First Aid and Firefighting categories. Procon has 1 employee on the Esterhazy K2 competition team and 2 employees on the Esterhazy K1 competition team.
Mine rescue competitions are designed to sharpen the skills and test the knowledge of emergency response team members who would be called on to respond to a mine emergency. In addition, the competitions enable the industry to maintain consistent standards of training and procedures between teams so they can provide mutual aid to one another in the event of an emergency. The most valuable part of mine rescue competitions is that teams get to know and learn from each other.
