When we think about technology and EMS, we often think of what goes on in the back of the ambulance.

But, as this article points out, there are some very interesting developments related to actually finding patients.  

 A new company, RapidSOS, is also engaged in developing a robust set of protocols that, when you signal for 911 service from your cell phone, will try to get the location to 911 dispatch using gps, text, cell networks, 4g, whatever type of connection they can make.

Very exciting tech that isn't about what happens after the ambulance finds you...its all about the "finding you" part.
