It's called a Mobile Medical Unit. Essentially a hospital emergency room in the back of an 18 wheeler. It's on tour in Kamloops. We'll step inside.

BC's Mobile Medical Unit is in Kamloops (Tara Copeland/CBC)

BC's Mobile Medical Unit is in Kamloops today. It's kind of a hospital on wheels. It's meant to roll into action wherever there's a major disaster in BC.
    
In the meantime, it travels around hosting various clinics.

Daybreak's Tara Copeland went for a look inside.

BC's Mobile Medical Unit is in Kamloops today for a cystic fibrosis clinic.

After that, it goes back to its warehouse in Delta. Waiting for an emergency call out. Or to host various clinics  - wherever they may be.
