PulsePoint App

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. For more information, visit our web site at www.pulsepoint.org or contact us at info@pulsepoint.org. 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.

  • Chief Craig SRFD 4/5

    By Chief Craig
    Excellent tool to have in addition to Dept issued pager.
  • Cool app. 4/5

    By Gills4
    I only use this to see where my local FD gets dispatched. I like listening to the calls as well. Good app, works well.
  • Highly recommend 4/5

    By s.love
    I'm telling all my coworkers, friends, and family about this app now. I was able to respond to a notification that someone nearby needed CPR, and I arrived on scene to do so (successfully, too! Yay!). The only suggestion I have is that when the address for the event shows, there should be an option to pull up that address in a maps application to navigate. I had to punch the address in on a separate app and fumbled it pretty good since I was nervous, but having this feature would have made this a 5-star rating.
  • Very helpful 5/5

    By Can not remember
    Great tool for first responders, anyone living in fire prone areas.
  • Good but not great 4/5

    By Srfnff
    Offers basic info. Very prompt and timely. Useful for avoiding TC locations. More in depth info and updates would make it great.
  • Love it 5/5

    By Jh93066
    I love this app, it's easy to use and I feel safer knowing what is going on around me.
  • Notifications 3/5

    By 808chri
    It doesn't make sense to me why I get notified of traffic accidents clear in the other side of Oahu as me
  • On the right track 5/5

    By cazpermania
    It's good to know what's happening in the surrounding areas.
  • PulsePoint 5/5

    By Kim2932
    Love this app.
  • Like the App very much 5/5

    By Jordan&kk21
    My son is a firefighter this app helps me to see the types of calls he is experiencing.
  • Could use improvements 4/5

    By PdxFireExplorer
    I love this app as I have been a firefighter Cadet in my area and have previously been a cadet with my county sheriffs office search and rescue team. Wish this app worked better. I know that at one point I use to be able to listen to Portland Oregon fire rescue. The department I use to work along side as a cadet and now can't hear the dispatches. Unsure if it's because of the app no longer providing the dispatch or BOEC there dispatch center. I hate having to go to radioreference to get the dispatch also don't get a lot of the dispatches overheard on my scanner showing up in this app. Also downside would be nice if could implement a way to see Police response as well.
  • Notifications for medical emergencies 3/5

    By Dahliafemme
    It's kinda stupid for an app used to give help in a medical emergency to not have the option of notifying you of a medical emergency. Like will it even notify me if I need to give CPR??
  • Great app 5/5

    By Midnight Magic
    Love this app, it keeps me up to date on what is going on in my community and since I am certified in CPR if the need arises I can arrive on a scene and help with life sustaining service's.
  • I love this app! 4/5

    By Anvimm
    This app rocks! It's essential for the work I do, and I rely on it more than I'd like to admit. That being said, the app gets wonkey at times and it can't find my location. I'm almost always in very populated areas or connected to a MiFi. My alerts also don't work. I took it to AT&T to see if they could figure it out but they were unable to find the problem. Every other alert FB, google, twitter and so on pops up, so I know it's not the phone. Anyway, when this app works, it's a life saver...literally!
  • ATL SW 1/5

  • Get this app 5/5

    By It keeps on crashing.
    This app is great!i haven't went to an emergency yet because the emergencys that happen aren't near my house but it lets me know what's going on and I know cpr how to revive a drowned victim and how to stop someone from choking so if emergencys happen near me I can help get this app everyone that has a iPad or iPhone should own it
  • Awesome App 5/5

    By Splcshea
    If you know CPR you need to get this app! It is also really nice to know where EMS is responding.
  • Great App 5/5

  • Save a life 5/5

  • No notices 2/5

    By Traciyoshi
    I'm not getting any notices but there coming up on the list.
  • Great app 4/5

    By Swimgirlz200
    I love this app being employed in EMS it lets me know what's happening not only with my co workers but in my community as well. I have it a 4 because it goes down a lot and also a lot of the medical calls don't show or alert I wish medical calls alerted on my phone as well. Also it does go down a lot I know it is dependent on the dispatching systems for the areas. Over all very happy would even pay for the app if it offered some different options
  • Love this app! 4/5

    By Proudmamaerica
    This app is so helpful to have. If I see fire trucks or ambulance go by, I just check the app and it tells me what the issue is and where. I only gave 4 stars because I think that under all the agencies I follow I should be able to get alerted to everything. Not just structure fires and car accidents etc. but medical emergencies, investigations, all of it. If it's listed in my feed I want an alert. Also, sometimes I get alerted and sometimes I'll go days without an alert (even though I have everything checked to receive alert). I think I have to have the app open to receive the alert and I wish I could be alerted even if app isn't running. Other than those two complaints, I really do like the app and find it an app everyone should have. I also (though I don't use it) love the cpr feature for those that are certified and want to help!
  • Great 5/5

    By Fottnall
    Great app
  • Calls 3/5

  • Worried 5/5

    By Halo punk
    Will the app work in time for the solar eclipse?
  • Would be 5/5 if notifications included all types 3/5

    By CVP0
    There are no notifications for medical events. Not sure why that was something that was left out but per staff they will add this in later releases. But this kind of alert is why I downloaded the app. Will be 5/5 when this is added.
  • Great app to have! 5/5

    By muffinmanaz
    No complaints thus far
  • Great app 5/5

    By Mrswanttruth
    Does exactly what I thought. I get to know what's going on around me with fires, wrecks and medical emergencies.
  • Great app!!!! 5/5

    By jrismyname777
    Best app ever. Who put this together is a genius.
  • One addition would make it better 4/5

    By I phon1134578
    Should be able to chose certain areas or Departments instead of a whole area
  • Depts in my area are down 5/5

    By Flyjocky
    Seem to be having issues with some depts near me not working. I work for one of them and really depend having the extra lead time on calls. I really hope they get this corrected asap.
  • Life savior! 5/5

    By Create nickname really
    I moved with my dogs to the area where there is dry brush. I'm thrilled to be receiving ER notifications so in case of fire we start packing n prepared. Tnk u!
  • Great idea! 5/5

    By Llynnmcd
    Recently took a CPR recertification course, and the instructor told us about this app.
  • Cpr 5/5

    By robntawn
    I was at work ...the alert went off ...cpr needed suite 1100....I ran to suite 1100... unresponsive and pulseless ...I started cpr ...did 2 rounds ...she had pulses. Wow. That was amazing!!!
  • Great app! 4/5

    By pulsepoint user
    I use it at work. It tells me when I have to respond to a structure fire before our dispatch does.
  • Great app! 5/5

    By djlantus
    All I can say to improve this app is sometimes the font can be hard to read! Please make the font easier to read through out the app! Keep up the good work though!
  • Beats dispatch everytime 4/5

    By Fireczar
    This app beats tones from dispatch 100% of the time--I'm amazed. I wish there was an option to see all activity of all agencies monitored on one screen rather than scrolling through each.
  • ? 3/5

    By Hink A
    I love this app but I have an issue. Why can't I get the info on Kern County unless I'm physically in Kern County? I like to know what's happening when I'm not gone.
  • Why no FDNY or Chicago 5/5

    By samson minytz
    U guys add chicago and FDNY because that will be very helpful due to the traffic
  • Get this app now! 5/5

    By Chefsu
    Extremely helpful to myself and friends! I along with two others live on a ranch in Northern California. Due to the lack of rain from early May till now vegetation is extremely dry. This app lets us know where there are vegetation fires and helps us plan accordingly. I recommend 100%!
  • Excellent 4/5

    By Spoll310
    Great app but I also lost audio. One day it was gone. I deleted app and downloaded again and everything is fine now.
