Dominion Diamond Corporation’s Ekati Underground Competition team was the overall winner of the underground events at the 12th Biennial National Western Regional Mine Rescue Competition in Fernie, British Columbia. The team made history when they took the overall underground prize for the first time, dominating in all events and coming in first place in four out of the seven competition events.

The Emergency Response Team (ERT) at the Ekati mine is a dedicated team of employees who protect their workforce during emergencies. They volunteer and devote an extensive amount of time to the team, expanding their skills and knowledge to handle real-life crisis management situations if called upon.
