A new documentary-style training video funded by a grant from NIOSH to the University of Texas at Arlington highlights the Wilberg Mine Fire in Emory County, UT, that killed 27 people on Dec. 19, 1984. The video is an oral history of the mine and the disaster by those who survived and assisted in the rescue efforts. It also features archival footage and news clippings from the time the incident occurred.

You can view the seven-minute trailer here, as well as visiting the film's Facebook group.
