Mine rescue simulations are software used to simulate mining disasters. The virtual scenario-based program allows rescue teams to safely participate in mine rescue emergencies to further develop hazard recognition skills, team communication and interaction skills, as well as decision-making skills, in a digital environment.
There are numerous advantages associated with allowing mine rescue teams to train using this software. The training, which is provided in a safe, digital environment, allows emergency response teams to strengthen their skills in realistically simulated mine emergency scenarios. Mine rescue teams are given the opportunity for immersive learning without associated dangers. With this training, mine rescuers will be more prepared in the event of an emergency. Mine rescue simulations provide teams with the opportunity to hone skills to produce a safer, more efficient rescue in real-life.
Mine rescue simulations allow mine rescue teams to further develop and strengthen skills to safely and efficiently respond to mine emergencies. Some of the skills that this technology trains include:
- Emergency triage
- Team communication
- Rescue extrication
- Practical rescue skills
- Hazard recognition
- Team interaction
