PulsePoint Respond Mobile App

PulsePoint Respond Mobile App
Posted on 12/07/2016

The Sierra Madre Fire Department is proud to announce the launch of the PulsePoint Respond mobile app.  PulsePoint Respond is a pre-arrival solution designed to support public safety agencies working to improve cardiac arrest survival rates through improved bystander performance and active citizenship.

PulsePoint Respond works by alerting CPR-trained bystanders to nearby SCA events and the location of the nearest AED.  The purpose of the app is to increase the survival rates of cardiac arrest victims by reducing collapse-to-CPR times by increasing citizen awareness of cardiac events beyond a traditional “witnessed” area.  The app is only activated if the event is occurring in a public place and will not alert bystanders to incidents occurring at a private residence.

The availability of the PulsePoint app in the City of Sierra Madre has been made possible thanks to the Verdugo Fire Communications Center.  PulsePoint is available in all fourteen jurisdictions of the Verdugo dispatch area: Alhambra, Arcadia, Burbank, Glendale, Monrovia, Montebello, Monterey Park, Pasadena, San Gabriel, San Marino, Sierra Madre, South Pasadena, Vernon, and the Burbank Airport.

Find out more information by visiting the Sierra Madre Fire Department’s website or visit PulsePoint.org.

PulsePoint Respond is available in the iOS and Android app stores.  Get the app.  Save a life.
