The EMERGO Train System (ETS) is an educational tool for training and testing disaster preparedness and management of major accidents and disasters. ETS is a pedagogic tool that can be used in a variety of educations, from basic to advanced level, in the field of disaster medicine in any country. Emergo Train System is owned by the County Council of Östergötland, developed by the University of Linköping and administrated by KMC – Centre for Teaching & Research in Disaster Medicine and Traumatology.


The ETS is based on magnet symbols on white boards representing patients, staff and resources, movable tags indicating priority and treatment and a large patient bank with protocol giving results of treatment based on trauma score. The magnetic symbols are available for both pre‐hospital and hospital settings. A number of magnetic signs are used for structuring the whiteboard and make it easier to use. The reason for using magnetic symbols is that you can use them on whiteboards, which makes the exercise very visible for the participants.


ETS is used by health care organizations, rescue services, police forces, crisis support organizations, military organizations etc. ETS is a strong tool to help you simulate the process of emergency response
