Abstract The report discusses the design and development of a comprehensive training program for Mine Rescue (MR) teams and a management tool for mine emergency preparedness. Approved by MSHA in 1984 to meet the requirements for 30 CFR, Part 49, the MR team training materials are user-ready, provide the principles and practices for both initial and advanced training, and supply MR teams with problem-solving activities. The Mine Emergency Preparedness Program (MEPP) is used by management as a tool in the preparation of company personnel for handling mine emergency operations such as mine fires, explosions, inundations, and other hazards that require a total response plan, and encompasses all of the steps from hazard recognition and containment to the involvement of teams in the rescue of survivors and the restoration of mining operations. As a completely new program, MEPP provides means for anticipatory planning of key initial steps in the development of procedures, that can lead to swift, orderly, and effective response to a mine emergency.
