Mine Rescue Stations

After a disastrous fire at the Hollinger Mine (Timmins) in 1928, mine rescue stations were established in several communities, including Sudbury. The stations stocked emergency gear and trained miners in rescue techniques, helping them to respond quickly and effectively to emergencies in the mines.
