The Emergency Medicine Learning and Resource Center's state of the art mobile simulation lab is outside the hospital Tuesday and Wednesday.

The lab educates participants in scenarios that they will see in the field and others that they have not even encountered.

The 45-foot motor coach has a full ambulance bay and emergency department area. It's moving throughout the state to educate first responders and emergency healthcare providers, stopping at hospitals in urban and rural areas, giving them a chance to work with the best equipment.

"One of the things that the grant funding provides for is rural departments, hospitals, paramedic programs, things of that sort, because typically they're the ones who miss out on the loop in training. All of this training is cost prohibitive to most agencies, particularly in the rural areas."

Crow says the dummies they use are fully interactive and worth nearly $80,000.
