Pulse Point Respond empowers individuals, within connected communities, with the ability to provide life-saving assistance to victims of cardiac arrest.
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.
The application uses location-based services to alert trained individuals in the immediate vicinity of the need for CPR.
I could get alerted for something across town yet say a car accident down the street from me doesn’t alert me, I do t quite get that one.

Pulse Point is a 501(c)(3) public non-profit foundation. Although we are working hard to make public safety agencies aware of Pulse Point, you can definitely help by expressing interest to your local fire chief, EMS official, and elected officials such as your mayor, council member or supervisor.
“Sudden Cardiac Arrest is not just a job for emergency responders but rather a community-based issue that requires a community-based response.” – International Association of Fire Chiefs “In no other medical situation is there such a vital reliance on the community.” You know the difference early CPR and defibrillation can make in a Sudden Cardiac Arrest event. Yet only 11% say they’ve used CPR in an actual emergency—that’s a number we can increase together.
When that life=threatening call comes in emergency responders will be ready.
A simple note, phone call or public meeting comment would ensure that they are aware of Pulse Point.
