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.

    The only reason I give it 4 stars is due to the fact that Android users can't have more than one agency set, iPhone users can. They can have up to 10. This needs to get fixed.

    Nice fit and finish, better than expected for content and usability. Would get 5 stars if going back from map view would remember place in list instead of always going to top of list.

    Great idea for app, but it is constantly using way too much GPS and battery life to make it convenient at the moment. Please fix.

    I have the samsung galaxy s3 and only get bits and pieces of the radio calls and it says my radio is on. I am a volunteer firefighter and need to hear calls on the go.

    Detroit MI does not use this but should. People die all over the city every day. Some of them were not shot too. Either way Detroit does not have the ability or equipment to take care of the citizens. This would give us a better chance of surviving ...

    20% at best. Great premise but no fun. functions random and double notice when it does. IPhone works better so not great.
