The oil boom in North Dakota has brought tens of thousands of workers to the state and transformed the economy. But the numbers of workers, and the dangerous work they do, have put great pressure on local healthcare services, from hospitals to ambulance crews.

Independent radio producer Todd Melby has been working on a series, “Black Gold Boom.” In Killdeer, a town in western North Dakota where the Census counted 751 residents in 2010, he talked with Ann Hafner, director of the Killdeer Area Ambulance Service, about the changes she’s seen.

Marketplace is airing a series of Todd’s vignettes of people and scenes from the boom region.

Todd Melby’s series, “Black Gold Boom,” is an initiative of Prairie Public and the Association for Independents in Radio.

If you’re a member of your local public radio station, we thank you — because your support helps those stations keep programs like Marketplace on the air.  But for Marketplace to continue to grow, we need additional investment from those who care most about what we do: superfans like you.

Your donation — as little as $5 — helps us create more content that matters to you and your community, and to reach more people where they are – whether that’s radio, podcasts or online.

When you contribute directly to Marketplace, you become a partner in that mission: someone who understands that when we all get smarter, everybody wins.
