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.

Continued use of GPS running in the background can dramatically decrease battery life.

PulsePoint app reviews

  • Great app 4/5

    By kolchak00
    Able to track all calls FR responds to and hear radio transmissions. In our city FR is dispatched prior to PD, so there is a minute or so delay to get a head start on. The entire county should participate.
  • Helpful 5/5

    By R Clem
    When I hear the sirens,I can look at the app and know if one of my friends are in need f help.
  • Great app 4/5

    By motorsgt
    Two of my sons are firefighter/paramedics for Ventura County Fire. I spent 38 years as a first responder. Love the speed of the app and layout. Wish it had some follow-up info for t/c's and fires.
  • Good replacement 4/5

    By rav-r
    This app replaced a similar app and works well.
  • Amazing 5/5

    By RadioKilla75
    There's a couple bugs that need to be fixed, but other than that, it's awesome!
  • LAFD Medical 3/5

    By samson minytz
    I noticed the past week medical calls weren’t coming up on LAFD
  • Great app needs gps route if 4/5

    By bwatty54
    Great app as I work as seasonal firefighter and on the ambulance .would like gps Routing just like Google maps for Apple iPhone.
  • Used to be great. Not so much anymore. 2/5

    By Qwdfvbtre
    When I first downloaded this app, PulsePoint sent me notifications of collisions and extended collisions, which helped me to take alternate routes if they were on my route. Now the notifications have all but disappeared. I actually got a notification yesterday for the first time in about a month, but when I clicked on it, it showed nothing in the app. I understand the county has to participate in order for this to work, but since nothing comes up for accidents any more, I will be deleting the app. Sorry to see it go. No need to have constant GPS running in the background depleting my battery now.
  • Good but a couple problems 4/5

    By TJ Antic YouTube
    THIS APP IS GREAT! When ever I miss something on my scanner I always look back at the app to see what I missed. The only problem is, is that if a call is over it will still say active even when over. Also when it shows the units responding/ responded it's off. And some calls don't show up.
  • iPhone X 1/5

    By FFDR06
    Please make compatible for iPhone X. Also you miss so many calls it’s terrible!
  • Love! iPad Pro version needed 5/5

    By turbulence360
    Love this app!! I use it daily. Just wish you guys could come out with an iPad Pro version of the app ASAP! Thanks so much!
  • Love this app!!! 4/5

    By 4EverButtercup
    Very helpful to avoid city streets or freeways when there is an accident. Love listening to live feed, though recently it hasn’t been working. Deleted the app and reinstalled and the audio still doesn’t work.
  • No audio 2/5

    By DBSteve
    This was a 5 star app until yesterday. It was working fine on Monday then on Tuesday there is no audio. I know it’s not my phone because I have the app on 3 devices and they all stopped working at the same time. A friend said the same thing happend to him. The notifications work, just no audio.
  • Please fix the problem 1/5

    By TheoThroy
    After I close the app it is not opening at all. It is crushing over and over again. I had to uninstall the app and install again in order to work :( I live this app but it is not working properly
  • Nice 5/5

    By Mikemaine
    This nice to have
  • Scanner doesn’t work 2/5

    By KaseyC819
    I downloaded the app so I could see what my husband gets into while at work. I have the button to turn the scanner on, but it is light gray and won’t turn on for me. Any suggestions?
  • Best App 5/5

    By FzA Nations
    Love the app, I am a Emergency Photographer names Cops And Firefighters on instagram And this helps me a lot. I can respond to calls faster than the Fire Department, I highly recommend this app for everyone interested in the fire service.
  • Cool app 4/5

    By Rc4rm
    Cool app
  • Notifications 2/5

    By Majorip4
    I get no notifications for structure fires for Montgomery County PA. I have all the settings checked but they don’t even show on the list of events. Help
  • Great app - and a suggestion 5/5

    By Gabriel McGowan
    This app is terrific! It works very well, and as a CPR certified citizen, I really appreciate the opportunity to help when emergency resuscitation is needed. Just one suggestion: I would love to be able to customize the alerts that I receive by agency. There are some agencies that I want to see all alerts from, and then there are other agencies that I just want to see certain types of alerts, like structure fires. Wish I could customize that.
  • Works sometimes 4/5

    By Thigh disheveled
    Works great, when it works. Sometimes I’ll get a notification for a structure fire, I’ll click on it and open the app, and the call is not in the drop down menu. Also sometimes there are calls for fires in the app, that I don’t get notified for. Other than that, not a bad app
  • First place I check 5/5

    By DocPep

  • Help is on the Way 5/5

    By UB238
    Great app for finding detailed information on emergencies taking place in my local community. Really helps me as an emergency first responder to maintain awareness of new and evolving incidents.
  • Awesome 5/5

    By HairNation in Delaware
    Instantly alerts you when something is happening in your area.
  • Pulse point 4/5

    By Curmdgn
    Nice to have the alert. It's ahead of the dispatch, so I flip over to scanner app to hear the details.
  • Cool App! 4/5

    By Tulsacowboy
    I am enjoying this app especially seeing which engine or squad is doing. If it allows me to help someone in the future then it is all worth the download.
  • Excellent app and purpose, but very inconsistent with alerts 4/5

    By msdosnt
    I want to say alerts work most of the time, but they don't. It has its days where most alerts happen, but usually it's about 40-75% of alerts happen. I know this because you can open it, look and compare that to the alerts your device has for it. I have it on my iPhone and iPad and they both have exactly the same problem and 100% of the same alerts and missed alerts, so it's the app. Some suggested improvements: Fix the alerts problem, it's a serious core issue for its purpose! Support for landscape view on iPad! iPhone not a big deal but on iPad it's very frustrating to always have to flip it around. Increase the real estate for an incident alert showing unit/incident status info. Memorizing the color legend is hard because a few are not that distinct! Going to the legend when you need it is many clicks away. If real estate is an issue, put a clickable link to the legend on the incident info that pops up to the side so you can reference it. The active/recent alert listview on the home page for an agency: let users decide whether to list all their agencies or singular, or choose which ones. Hard to get the single pain of glass view by switching agency by agency. Busy agencies/areas would be too much, but let the user decide what's best for them. If an alert does not have address/map information it's pretty much useless unless maybe you have 1 or 2 units in your entire agency. Let users choose the sound for alerts

  • 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

  • On the right track 5/5

  • PulsePoint 5/5

    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!
