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.

    Only allows you to choose one service to respond. Also don't have many services in my area. Since I have more than one ambulance and fire departments.

    I have the galaxy S5. And while now receiving notifications, the radio function does not work. Causes the app to force close. Kit kat-SFFR-Galaxy S5.

    Doesn't get all the calls that come out for my fire dept. Had it for 3 days and only got 1 out of 6 calls in that time.

    Great app for emergency managers, but I don't get all the iPhone features on my Android. Would especially like to be able to select more than 1 dispatch area for notifications. Any possibility to do this soon? Thanks.

    When entering the agency there isn't a dallas option, or even anything in texas for that matter. Add more states and cities please!

    I use this app for work and it's a good idea. However, the radio does not work on my galaxy S4
