Alpha Natural Resources is unveiling a training center for coal miners in West Virginia.
The Bristol, Virginia based company says the world's best technology that could save lives will be available to miners.
The Running Right Leadership Academy has a model coal mine to simulate realistic and dangerous situations that miners can prepare for in case they happen.
The academy came out of a settlement with the U.S. Department of Justice after the Upper Big Branch Mine Disaster.
