What has Netkiller been up to these past few weeks? Developing the first ever pure Google Apps cloud solution for an Ambulance Unit. Netkiller ( ) worked with the Forest Hills Volunteer Ambulance Corps (FHVAC) to design and develop a cloud solution for storing and dispatching ambulance response in a timely and efficient manner. NICER was presented last week at Pulse Check, an annual volunteer ambulance conference.

NICER is built entirely on the Google Cloud platform, providing for secure connections and 99.9% up time guaranteed. Because NICER is built purely on this platform, it runs within your Google Apps for Education accounts without 3rd party applications. Google Apps for Education is a free suite of hosted email and collaboration applications for non-profit organizations.

So what exactly is NICER and how does it work? NICER is a case management system designed specifically for ambulance units. NICER uses 4 categories of information to effectively and efficiently store data: Hotline Call, Dispatch Information, Notification, and Crew. Throughout the emergency response all of these activities are logged and instantly entered into and accessible from the program database. [click to keep reading]
