PulsePoint


PulsePoint empowers individuals, within covered communities, with the ability to provide life-saving assistance to victims of cardiac arrest. Application users who have indicated they are trained in cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) are notified if someone nearby is having a cardiac emergency and may require CPR. If the medical emergency is in a public place, the application uses sophisticated location-based services to alert trained citizens in the immediate vicinity of the need for CPR. The application also directs these citizen rescuers to the exact location of the closest public access Automated External Defibrillator (AED).

PulsePoint currently provides coverage for hundreds of cities and communities, with many more on the way.

The PulsePoint app is a virtual window into these 911 communication centers and provides real-time access to emergency activity as it is occurring. Users can view incidents - including the current response status of dispatched units - and instantly pinpoint the location on an interactive map. Curious as to where that fire engine or ambulance that just passed is headed? Is there an accident up ahead causing this traffic tie-up? Just tap the application to quickly find the incident location or plan an alternate route.

Additionally, users can choose to receive incident notifications when they are dispatched and listen in on live emergency radio traffic via this modern version of the traditional fire scanner. A photo gallery of significant events along with other agency images and information can also be easily accessed.

Would you like to see PulsePoint supported in your community? All that is required on the local level is the initiative to get started. Bring PulsePoint to the attention of your local fire department, city council, or emergency response agency and tell them you would like them to see PulsePoint helping to save lives in your community.

Original development of the PulsePoint app was the result of a successful partnership between the San Ramon Valley Fire Protection District (CA) and the College of Informatics at Northern Kentucky University in 2009. In 2011 the PulsePoint Foundation was formed “to share its life saving potential.” Today all engineering is provided by skilled volunteers from Workday, Inc.

Always behind the ball. I see engines enroute and on scene or available on scene before I even get a notification. I will depend on my scanner before I depend on this app. It sucks.

Dissapointing Cannot add multiple agencies, and gives zero details, just shows you a map and somethings going on here. Huge dissapontment, pointless on android

Could be better Closest "agency" for me to choose from was in Cleveland, OH. I live in Indianapolis, IN. Does not give the option to set location close to you. Too bad, I was really wanting to use this app.

Great app.... This is probably one of the most functional and useful apps I've used. Don't leave a bad review just because they don't have your city. Be patient guys, they are slowly adding locations.

Great idea, needs multi agency This app is a great idea, however it needs multi agency function for those of us who travel consistently.
