Live monitoring for underground refuge

During sudden, life-threatening situations underground, emergency refuge chambers provide personnel with immediate shelter and access to clean breathable air, food and water while rescue plans are executed.

These chambers, however, are only one part of the critical operations of emergency response. Both having open lines of communication and real-time environmental monitoring are vitally important for those coordinating efforts above ground.

Without reliable communication, there exists the potential for a daunting sense of isolation for those trapped underground. Real-time monitoring ensures surface operations have a full understanding of the situation, both for personnel inside the chamber and for the rescue teams advancing to the location.

Strata Worldwide Emergency Refuge Chambers (ERCs), coupled with the company’s DigitalBRIDGE communication network, provides a complete safety system for the ultimate mine emergency preparedness.
