Hunter, ND (WDAY TV) - Our rural small towns EMT's and first responders are going to school, "for free", thanks to a new "emergency patient" education center on wheels.

This mobile training unit is traveling North Dakota, assisting E-M-T, First Responders, and Paramedics.

Unlike some training, the mannequins respond to treatments and care, so it is very "realistic."

The SIM-ND unit is in Hunter, North Dakota Wednesday night.

It was in Fargo for training Wednesday.

Jason Eblen/Paramedic: “UND got a grant thru the Hemsley Foundation, and its run thru the school of medicine and the North Dakota Star Training Center. There are 4 trucks in the state, Fargo, Bismarck, Grand Forks and Minot. And they each go that quarter of the state.”

A control room in the middle of the 44-foot long truck allows instructors to send X-rays, lab results and "curve-ball" complications to the students.
