Abstract

This paper describes a forthcoming research project exploring how technological systems are used to tether paramedic work practices to organizational bases when work goes on the move. Inspired by Mobilities scholarship in both crisis response and mobile work, this paper describes a project, Work on The Move, specifically discussing how information systems support and are utilized during the transference of work from ‘organizational bases’ to other arenas, focusing on the sociality of information systems, what they afford and how they bridge spatial divides between paramedic crews and organizational bases.
