PulsePoint Respond

PulsePoint Respond


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. See http://www.pulsepoint.org/pulsepoint-respond/#coverage%20map for a coverage map.

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.

First Time Responding I just beat the fire department in by 5 minutes....paramedics in by 8.....law enforcement by 9 minutes to a cardiac arrest. Unfortunately, the 88 year old lady showed signs of dying several hours ago.....nothing I could do. But the point is that this app works!

Pulse point This new update is not as good as the old,Not broke don't fix it . The map is slower to show streets and the streets are covered up by the rectangular run card . it doesn't separate fire assignment s form ems runs anymore and the run card are harder to read due to the small print . The little red alert icon when a report of fire is gone,now its a hard to see white icon.

Can see calls but can't hear them Following Plano Fire (TX). Just downloaded app on Samsung S III. I can see the active calls but cannot hear them. Checked volume settings all good. Also not receiving notifications from my choices, where would the notifications display?

Buggy Love the app but it crashes a lot on my S5. The notifications no longer work either. I'm reinstalling it to see if it helps but for now this app is useless to me.
