Are you brave? Are you strong? Are you sympathetic? Can you fit in tight spaces? Would you join a team of ordinary people, working in extraordinary conditions to save lives? See how mine operators continued to learn from mining disasters to create a robust Mines Rescue service with state-of-the-art equipment that is still in operation today in the Rescue! Exhibition at the National Coal Mining Museum.

On Saturday 18 March you can experience a taste of an Air Ambulance Paramedic’s work day in a fully immersive simulator where you can see the scenario projected around you, smell the environment and feel the temperature as you try and save the Simbodies’ lives.
