Four teams from Carmeuse took part in the 2018 Metal/Nonmetal National Mine Rescue Competition at the Heri- tage Center in Lexington, Ky. The event featured more than 32 teams across the United States. Teams repre- senting Carmeuse included the Black River Bandits, Georgia Team Thunder, Luttrell Rangers and Maysville Raiders. In the contest, Dan Mero and Heath Gulley placed first in Technician Team Bio-Marine BioPak 240 and first place overall in the Technician Team Individ- ual category. Anthony Payne, Dan Mero, Terry Highfield and Ren Ramer all had perfect scores on the field test. The company's Kenny Heater was honored and inducted into the Mine Rescue Hall of Fame. For the past 38 years, Heater has been heavily involved in mine rescue and has solved issues involving fires, roof falls, gas, water, structural failure, electrical hazards and victim recovery. The national competition is held every other year at a different location. National competitions are designed for teams to learn, execute and maintain required mine site emergency rescue skills for trapped or injured miners. Challenges in the national competition included a written skills test, hands-on and written first aid tests, hypotheti- cal problem-solving and a timed mock rescue observed by a panel of judges. Carmeuse Lime & Stone is staffed by up to 2,000 employees throughout 28 production facilities in Eastern U.S. and Canada, with North America operations headquartered in Pittsburgh.
