Human Library Project: Glen Duffy, Sudbury
Glen Duffy got involved with mine rescue in 1999. He was inspired to volunteer after hearing stories of his grandfather’s time in mine rescue, working during such incidents as the infamous McIntyre Mine fire in Timmins in 1965. In addition to his 14 years in mine rescue, Glen is also a volunteer firefighter, meaning he’s done as many rescues above ground as below. Outside of his volunteer duties, Glen serves as the superintendent of safety with Vale operations in Sudbury.
