Mine Rescue and First Aid Room

Geevor had a team of rescuers and first aider’s trained to deal with any kind of accident or fire outbreak. 

The first aid room was used by the mine up until the last shift in 1990. Any major accidents were dealt with by the men trained in first aid. All accidents had to be reported and recorded in the mine accident book.   In 1967 the old winder house was demolished and rebuilt to house the First Aid Room and Mine Rescue Room.
