Coal mine operators, supervisors, and employees, as well as State and Federal mine inspectors use the records to provide assurance that each mine operator and mine rescue team is prepared for a mine emergency. Records also show that mine rescue team equipment has been examined and tested and is in good working order. Training records show that mine rescue team members and the responsible persons at the mine are competent to respond to a mine emergency involving a fire, an explosion, or a gas or water inundation.
