Competing Mine Rescue teams from across Alberta will demonstrate their rescue techniques to vie for the top spot and the respect of their peers. This competition serves as a platform for the public, industry, and the Province to showcase the current capabilities of mine rescue operations.

Safety is our way of life

The first mine rescue teams in Alberta were formed in response to the Frank Slide in 1903 and the Bellevue Explosion in 1910. In 1911 mine rescue stations sprouted up in each of Alberta’s mining districts. Crowsnest Pass Rescue Station #1 operated out of a converted rail passenger car. It was centered in Blairmore and could be rapidly transported to any mine in the Pass.


The Alberta Mine Safety Association (AMSA) was formed in December 1982. The principal reason was to look for opportunities to make mining safe for all Albertans. The committee works collaboratively with the Government of Alberta. The committee is non-government funded. The AMSA Mine Rescue Committee operates under the direction of the AMSA main committee. The MR Committee develops standards, training material and oversees the direction of Mine Rescue in the province.
