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.

NOTE: Configuration of this app includes the capability for continuous GPS monitoring. Continued use of GPS running in the background can dramatically decrease battery life.
What's New in Version 3.18
• Japanese language version
• Improved agency statistics
This is an excellent app! For some reason, I was not receiving audible alerts; they stopped for some unknown reason. I tried to troubleshoot, but never figured out what was wrong. The other day, I noticed that I was getting audible alerts, once more, after several months without. I have not heard anything today, which would be uncommon because of the busy area where I live. I will pay attention throughout the rest of the day, and I hope that I have not lost that capacity because the app is not as effective when there is no sound to alert me to what is happening in real time.
Excellent tool for public service
This app allows not only first responders to be notified of incidents in their general area on and off dirty; it allows citizens who are trained in critical lifesaving skills to respond and assist with care. This app not only helps the patient, it helps the first responders and the emergency telecommunicators cut critical time.
Only a few technical issues I would like to see changed.
Great app, only 1 complaint!
This is a great app for people to see what is going on in the community. My only complaint is for the notifications, there is no option to turn on medical emergency notifications. As a first responder with no more slots for the app Active 911, it would be great to turn on notifications for medical emergencies as well at fires, car crashes, etc.
