On May 16, 2013, Debbie Tomko, Brandon Christ, and Paul Huemmrich visited South Park Middle School in South Park, Pennsylvania to speak about mine safety through the “Stay Out – Stay Alive” program. There were two 60-minute sessions with 5th graders totaling 156 students. They began the first portion of the program by showing the students the “Stay Out – Stay Alive” DVD. After the movie, Debbie, Brandon, and Paul spoke to the students on the many dangers that various types of mines present and their experiences when entering mine facilities. They also showed the students the protective gear that is used at the mine and talked about the training received to perform their job in a safe manner. Five students had the opportunity to try on the protective equipment. Stickers, literature, coloring books, and crayons were provided by MSHA to distribute to the students after completion of the program.
