We recently received an email from Alpha developer Sean Werner with the subject line "Alpha Five Saves Lives!" Naturally we are delighted when we get emails like this one because it gives one reason to pause and take stock of what Alpha Five means to developers who are using it and the benefits that accrue from their applications.

Dear Mr. Rabins, I know we have sent emails back and forth before. I apologize for not being allowed by my employer to be interviewed for the Alpha blog. At this time, we have changed management, and I am happy to be interviewed by anyone from your blog. I am happy to tell anyone about what Alpha Five has done for me and for public safety in general. I will always stay with Alpha Five, since it is an amazing product, backed up by excellent customer service. I would be interested in the Alpha Anywhere package you are planning to release, since it will have mobile offerings and I can tie everything together using one development program. As I have said in the past, Alpha Five has transformed the way we respond to 911 calls. It is also has improved our operations significantly. I have always said that with the power of Alpha Five, paramedics can save more lives. I believe you have seen the screencast videos I sent you in the past about what I have created, and how your software has helped us. (The videos are shown below) I have also started my own software company called Sean Werner Software, and I have my own IT business called Accurate IT Solutions. I have used Alpha Five v11 to create a medical charting program for EMS Providers that collects over 500+ data fields on desktop, mobile and web based solutions. It also exports the data to xml for upload to state servers, and for billing products. It uses a backend sql database and the native dbf files. I have attached a few screen shots of EMIRS and I have also attached the compliance letter from NEMSIS, the national emergency medical services information system showing my compliance with NEMSIS data standards. Thank you again for creating an awesome piece of software that has helped many. Sean Werner, March 2013
