The Hudbay Mine Rescue team from Flin Flon won the provincial mine rescue competition held in Winnipeg this past weekend for the second year in a row. Mine Safety’s Olaf Hettrick says the team topped five other teams from across the province. He says in first aid and in the underground and practical skills they did excellent and they also competed in a fire fighting challenge and a written test.
The Hudbay team will now compete in the Canada Western Region competition in Fernie, B.C. in September. The team is made up of Captain Tracy Knutson, Jeremy Beauchamp, Dustin Patterson, Damian Dominey, George Warman and Vice-Captain Brian Rainville
