"We conducted a trial with Axon cameras in 2014 and it proved to be an invaluable teaching tool that improved our clinical practice and sped up advanced certifications," CCEMS Executive Director Bradley England said. "The use of this technology contributed to saving at least two lives because our paramedics were able to show ER doctors exactly what they saw in the field."

The cameras will “enable point-of-view video with unlimited HD and a 120-degree field of view,” according to a press release.

Axon CEO and Founder Rick Smith said the company aims to “provide the best technology solutions” to first responders.

"By offering all first responders the opportunity to capture and share critical video and other data on one network, they are able to seamlessly work together to improve health and safety in their communities,” he said.
