The University of North Dakota medical school is getting a $5 million grant to help train emergency responders in rural areas.
The money from the Leona M. and Harry B. Helmsley Charitable Trust will be used for four mobile training vehicles. One each will be based in Grand Forks, Fargo, Minot and Bismarck. The vehicles will include a simulated emergency room, a simulated ambulance and a simulated control center.
The training vehicles will be staffed by three-person teaching crews made up of people from each of the state's six major hospital systems.
