According to the results of the All-Russian festival on the subject of safety and rescue of people “Constellation of Courage”, the Prokopyevsky of the Order of the Red Banner of Labor, the paramilitary mine rescue squad was recognized as the best in the EMERCOM of Russia in 2021. The detachment was awarded the honorary title for the fourth time. Mine rescuers won the same category in 2015, 2017 and 2019.

The Prokopyevsk paramilitary mine rescue detachment began its history back in 1927. Then, for the first time, a professional mine rescue team of only fifteen people was organized at the mine of the same name. Today the detachment consists of about 150 specialists. Most of them are rescuers, certified for the right to conduct mine rescue, gas rescue, search and rescue and emergency rescue operations.

The experience and qualifications of the Prokopyevsk mine rescuers are known far beyond Kuzbass. Over the years, they have participated in the elimination of major accidents and emergencies not only in Russia, but also abroad.

During the existence of the detachment, a large number of mine rescuers have been trained, who are distinguished by high qualifications, dedication to their work, and professional skill. This allows you to maintain morale in any circumstances and successfully apply new methods of emergency response underground. For the results achieved in the service, the mine rescuers of the Prokopyevsky VGSO were repeatedly awarded state and departmental awards.
