Partnership to provide first responders with Google Glass

CrowdOptic, a mobile communications provider, and ProTransport-1, a medical transport provider, are teaming up to outfit teams of paramedics with Google Glass technology. The partnership will provide first responders the ability to broadcast a live view of the situations they encounter while en route to hospitals and allow for collaboration from doctors who are not on the scene. In addition, ProTransport-1 strategy officer Glenn Leland said that the company envisioned a variety of operational processes will use CrowdOptic and Google Glass technology in the future. Story
