SPRINGDALE, AR - A high-tech system providing faster service to patients will soon be used by first responders in Springdale.

The City Council voted unanimously Tuesday night to purchase a mobile EMS reporting system. The system will connect to Wi-Fi on each ambulance, sending a detailed patient report directly to the hospital.

Right now, medics have to write each report by hand, type it up, then fax the information. The news system could be implemented by the end of year.
