Abstract
This paper discusses emergency response planning with a special emphasis on small minesites. It addresses the importance of an emergency response plan and offers some tips for developing a useful document. The content of the paper is based on U.S. Bureau of Mines research focusing on mine emergency response. Examples from past mine emergency situations are used to highlight the discussion. The paper is intended to stimulate the thinking of both small mine operators and those safety professionals who work with individuals from small mines. It is not meant to be the final word on emergency response plans.
