This week the mine rescue crew from the Bowie #2 Mine is at the Delta-Montrose Technical College in Paonia preparing for an upcoming competition. 

Tony Wachowicz, a member of the Bowie coal mine rescue team, is participating in rescue training at the college.

“Mine rescue training is where you have a group of guys who go into a simulated problem and you go into a simulated field and you vent different gases and you save different people that have gotten into a situation," Wachowicz said.
