The Sierra Madre Fire Department is proud to announce the launch of the PulsePoint Respond mobile app. PulsePoint Respond is a pre-arrival solution designed to support public safety agencies working to improve sudden cardiac arrest (SCA) survival rates through improved bystander performance and active citizenship.
PulsePoint Respond works by alerting CPR-trained bystanders to nearby SCA events and the location of the nearest AED. The purpose of the app is to increase the survival rates of cardiac arrest victims by reducing collapse-to-CPR times by increasing citizen awareness of cardiac events beyond a traditional “witnessed” area. The app is only activated if the event is occurring in a public place and will not alert bystanders to incidents occurring at a private residence.
Find out more information by visiting the Sierra Madre Fire Department’s PulsePoint page or visit PulsePoint.org.
PulsePoint Respond is available in the iOS and Android app stores.
