GARY, Ind. (AP) - A trailer outfitted as a mobile hospital will make its public debut at a northwest Indiana air show next month.

The Times reports (https://bit.ly/1lIflSK ) that the specially equipped medical trailer was shown off Friday outside a meeting of the Indiana Emergency Medical Services Commission at Methodist Hospitals Northlake campus in Gary.

The trailer belongs to the District 1 Hospital Emergency Planning Committee. District 1 includes Lake, Porter, LaPorte, Newton and Jasper counties.

The trailer is stocked with oxygen tanks, wheelchairs, IV poles, monitoring supplies, beds and a large tent for shelter.

The mobile hospital was purchased with a federal grant.

It will make its debut in July at the South Shore Air Show at Fair Oaks Farms.
