PulsePoint App

Post by FireEngines » Thu Feb 01, 2018 6:30 pm

Here is a great app that works on both Apple and Android. It only is available in certain areas of the country. Where I live, every time an apparatus or EMS unit is dispatched, it shows up on the phone the location. If you are registered as a first responder and know CPR it app will page you with the exact address of the medical car. The hope is you will respond and get there before EMS. The link is below:

When a cardiac emergency strikes, finding an Automated External Defibrillator (AED) can help save a life. But that takes knowing where AEDs are located.

PulsePoint AED lets you report and update AED locations so that emergency responders, including nearby citizens trained in CPR and off-duty professionals such as firefighters, police officers and nurses, can find an AED close to them when a cardiac emergency occurs.

With PulsePoint AED you can help strengthen the chain of survival for cardiac arrest victims. Download PulsePoint AED for free and use it to report AEDs in your community. Describe the location, snap a picture, and the information is stored for local authorities to verify. After that, the AED location data is made available to anyone using PulsePoint Respond (also available for free in the App Store). PulsePoint Respond is the app that alerts citizen responders who know CPR to local emergencies near them and also to the location of the nearest AED.

The AEDs that you locate and report using PulsePoint AED are also made available to local dispatchers in the emergency communication center, allowing them to direct callers to the nearby life-saving devices.

That’s just what we need is people driving to someone’s house trying to be a hero, we have people in place to do that.

Sounds good in theory, However, I'm with Hoser on this one. I don't think I'd like a bunch of random people knowing whats going on or someone showing up without some sort of vetting process or affiliation with a Fire/EMS department. It will add more confusion to an already confusing scene.

Can't wait for the bad guys to figure this one out and use it to their advantage

Actually, I like the app. It shows all sorts of incidents, not just medical emergencies, but structure fires, traffic accidents, etc. If I'm at home and hear sirens, I can launch the app and know immediately what's going on.
