Age: 46

Residence: Mather, Greene County

Occupation: Safety inspector at Consol Energy Inc.'s Enlow Fork mine

Background: Before starting at Consol in December 2006, Brottish worked in several fields, including as a home inspector in San Diego. He was part of a team of 46 men at Consol who worked underground this spring to seal off and put out a mine fire in the Blacksville No. 2 Mine on the Pennsylvania-West Virginia border.

Quote: “We're really dependent on each other for our lives, so it is a very, very close-knit group. ... If (the camaraderie) wasn't there, I don't think I could do the job. Everybody who gets on the team has a great sense of pride and wanting to do things to help their fellow employees.”
