7th annual Mine Rescue & Skills competition on tap at SIC
The seventh annual Mine Rescue & Skills Competition is coming to Southeastern Illinois College June 12 and 13, hosted by SIC and partner Illinois Eastern Community Colleges. More than 80 coal miners from around the region will compete and train in a variety of skills they hope to never have to use, readying themselves for fires, cave-ins and various other potential underground disasters. "We have been hosting this event for seven years, and this year is the third time we have had 12 teams compete," said Ben Ross, career and technical education coordinator at SIC.
