A mobile hospital with mock patients being treated for injuries. It was a training mission for medical professionals from around the state at the Minneapolis Convention Center Tuesday. A number of volunteers make up the mobile medical teams.

There are two of them across the state.

Their mission is to help out when disaster strikes and hospitals and clinics are over-whelmed with patients.

The medical teams and equipment can be deployed anywhere in the state within a day, but Minnesota is also a leader in sending emergency teams and equipment to help with disasters across the country.
