The "rescue chamber" is a safety provision of some of the large Austrian mines. It is a strongly timbered retreat, and its single entrance has a door that can be made tight against air and water by means of rubber fittings. It has three cylinders of oxygen, sufficient to enable 30 men to breathe for three days. Inhalation gear is at hand for leaving the chamber for reconnaisance or signalling, and canned food, medicines, and first aid appliances arc also kept in the place. The standard room will accommodate twenty-four men for a reasonable time for rescue.
