The South Australian Mines Emergency Response Competition is heading for Whyalla this October. 

The competition is designed to test the skills and knowledge of mine emergency response teams and will be held in and around Whyalla’s CBD.

This is the first time the event will be held in a South Australian regional town or city – usually being held at remote mine sites.
