EMTs enjoyed free admission Thursday at ECHO Lake Aquarium and Science Center in Burlington.

Vermont first responders were invited to the "Our Body" exhibit now on display.

EMTs say it gives them a much better understanding of what's going on inside the body.

"We can see and hear what the patients are telling us on the outside, but what's actually going on and what they're saying, and we can kind of relate it to the muscle groups underneath or the spine, with any sort of injury or illness," said Nathaniel Donley, an EMT from Groton.

Members of the Vermont National Guard medical unit were also on hand. They brought their Red Cross Humvee and human patient simulator.

The "Our Body" exhibit runs at ECHO through Sept. 3.
