The U.S. Mine Safety and Health Administration (MSHA) awarded $1 million to fund training programs on safety and emergency preparedness in underground mines.
MSHA announced that seven organizations will receive the awards through its Brookwood-Sago grants program.
“Training is the key for proper, safe and effective emergency response,” said Joseph A. Main, assistant secretary of labor for mine safety and health. “The programs funded by these federal grants will enable miners working underground to be better prepared in the event of a mine emergency,” he said.

It is named in remembrance of 13 men who died in two explosions in Brookwood, Ala., in 2001, and 12 men who died in an explosion at the Sago Mine in Tallmansville, W.Va., in 2006.
