Abstract
This is a brief discussion of some of the equipment being developed by the U.S. Bureau of Mines to improve the odds for the survival of miners exiting an underground coal mine after an emergency and to enhance the safety of rescue team members recovering the mine. At a lay worker's technical level, a new escape breathing apparatus, a low-profile rescue breathing apparatus, a mine rescue team protective ensemble, and a rescue team helmet are presented with appropriate background information describing their need and operation.
