Special to the Standard-Examiner

OGDEN, Utah—Weber State University’s Department of Emergency Care and Rescue (ECR) is set to unveil its new, state-of-the-art ambulance simulator. The simulator is the first in the nation to contain a sound system that replicates sirens and other outside noises, and the first ambulance simulator of any kind built in the Intermountain West.

Students already receive high-quality training at the university, said Chris Barragan, development director for the Dumke College of Health Professions.

“This just brings an immediate, real-world feel to what they’re receiving in their training,” he said. “The opportunity to walk into a classroom, and make it look exactly like it would inside of an ambulance, is fantastic.”

The first demonstration for the simulator will be held on June 20 from 9 a.m. to noon in the Marriott Health Science Building Room 409 as part of a critical-care transport course. Seven students, all of whom have previous experience working on an ambulance, will participate in the course. The university also will hold a community day in the fall to showcase the new unit.
