Abstract
The first step to emergency preparedness is defining and analyzing hazards. although all hazards should be addressed, resource limitations usually do not allow this to happen all at once. risk assessments are used to establish priorities so that the most dangerous situations are addressed first and those least likely to occur and least likely to cause major problems can be considered later. while the examples provided in this training package are specific to mine fires, the concepts and tools can be applied to any mine hazard.
