Our Public Safety Group team exhibited at EMS World Expo in Las Vegas, NV on October 18-20, 2017. Booth 1719 was bustling all week and we enjoyed seeing many new and familiar faces! There was a lot of excitement surrounding the release of the personalized EMS continuing education solution, Recert, and many people stopped by to demo the all-new PEPP, Revised Third Edition Renewal Course (ALS Version and BLS Version).
A North Carolina fire fighter has developed an app for Google Glass that he hopes will enable first responders to save time during an emergency. As a "Google Explorer," Patrick Jackson is a member of Google's Glass Explorer Program, which allows him to test the wearable technology before it goes to market. Right now, his app is geared towards assisting fire fighters in the field by displaying important information hands-free at the fire fighter's command. Relevant and timely information may include: dispatch data, location of emergency, nearest fire hydrants, etc.
