||This guide was created by a multidisciplinary team to teach miners of underground mines about emergency escape and using refuge chambers. The training is a Microsoft PowerPoint presentation and is intended for group-based training. It is designed to be used as a template for mine instructors to modify based on the refuge alternatives and specifics of their mine. Refuge chambers may be new to miners. They consist of portable chambers that are either made of steel or are tents that inflate from a steel skid. They provide water, food, toilet, breathable air, and a seal to protect occupants from the outside environment for at least 96 hours, or four days.
