Get your underground card, and your emt-m card. Wait a bit, (I know that is difficultr). I look for the underground to pick up, and the strip mines to have it rough.

I don't know where you live but Universal Coal Services, aka Appolo is a contractor who takes red hats. My husband works for Massey in Logan County, and has been seeing red hats on 3rd shift where he works. He's on production so he doesn't work with them, but he's been seeing them around doing odd jobs. He's an EMT-M..not sure what a EMT-B is.

YES THERE ARE COMPANIES HIRING BOTH BLACK AND RED HATS. MOST RED HATS USUALLY HAVE TO GO THROUGH CONTRACTORS SERVICES. COAL IS ON THE RISE AGAIN MET COAL IS IN HIGH DEMAND AGAIN. STEAM COAL IS NOT IN AS HIGH OF DEMAND. MOST NOT ALL BUT MOST BLACK HATS THAT CANT GET ON IS BECAUSE THEY HAVE BEEN FIRED AND THERE IS A HIGH RATE OF DRUG TEST FAILURES.

ICG just shut down 2 mines. Things are going to get hard. Hope and pray things pick up for everyones sake.
I live 5 min from ICG have several friends that work there and they can get enough coal out. when a mines shuts down doesnt always mean financial could be out of coal, conditions to bad to mine and not profitable, several reasons . met coal is picking up quiet well!!

Whatever contractor you use keep up with your time,make copies of the time sheets and if the pay isnt right call the contractors office and talk to the mine office. You may hear bad things about one or the other but remember there are 2 sides and maybe someone was let go for laziness, missing work ,late for work, alchol or drugs, or being unsafe and yes some people just cant do it plain and simple. there are exceptions someone gets a raw deal. but remember you and the men you work with are the number 1 safety inspectors!!! Be safe and work safe.I have worked for Massey for several years and whenever i reported unsafe conditions it was taken care of.

I just turned 35,am i over the hill by their standards now.I do no drugs or alcohol,have 12 years of firefighting experience although they probably don't pay much attention to that.I would like to find mines hiring redhats in Kanawha county if possible or over by the Seth,Orgas area.I would submit to a hair test with no problem,but getting your foot in is very hard i have found out if you dont have family working there.I have looked at the Bickmore mines but would like to find something a little closer if possible,that is a long haul from where i live.I know beggers cant be choosers but i dont want to spend 3/4 of my check on gas either.
