About this app

PulsePoint Respond is a 911-connected app that can immediately inform you of emergencies occurring in your community and can request your help when CPR is needed nearby.

PulsePoint helps create an informed and engaged community that drives a “Culture of Action,” a key strategy in strengthening the Chain of Survival for cardiac arrest victims. In addition to nearby “CPR-needed” notifications, you can choose to be notified of significant events that may impact you and your family. These informational notifications provide an early heads-up to local threats such as wildland fires, flooding and utility emergencies. You can even monitor live dispatch radio traffic for most PulsePoint-connected communities with a simple tap on the speaker icon.

PulsePoint currently provides coverage for thousands of cities and communities, with many more on the way. For more information, visit pulsepoint.org, contact us at info@pulsepoint.org, or join the conversation at Facebook and Twitter.

PulsePoint not yet available in your community? Although we are working hard to make public safety agencies aware of PulsePoint, you can help by expressing interest to your local fire chief, EMS official, and elected officials such as your mayor, council member or supervisor. A simple note, phone call or public meeting comment would ensure that they are aware of PulsePoint. We have found that City Hall does listen and is quite willing to bring PulsePoint to the community.

PulsePoint is a 501(c)(3) public non-profit foundation.

Mine doesn't ever give me alerts for CPRs near by even though I have that notification on. Not sure why. Other than that it is an excellent app. Mapping is clear and precise. Easy to use and very handy when you want to know about traffic accidents. This is a very well made up and a great asset to both private citizens and first responders.

Hi Aidyn- Public CPR events do not happen frequently. We do not alert to SCA in private residences. Are you aware of an SCA incident that did not alert you? If so, contact us at support@pulsepoint.org with the details and we'll investigate.

Has disappointingly gotten worse over time. Maps/locations are usually inaccurate to the center of a road than the actual address. The sound bar has disappeared so there's no quick way to pause on android from the notification bar. No coverage of nearby Carson City at all. Was a good app and very vital to my work as a stringer but needs improvement for the local area. PLEASE. 🙏🏻

Hi Shadow- Not sure what agency you're referring to, but incident locations are based on coordinates sent by the agency's CAD. For all agencies that provide radio, we see play and pause in the notification list. Carson City Fire currently has 26 current/recent incidents, so we're not sure why you say there is no coverage there.

Pulse point is pretty accurate with dispatched calls. The only thing that could improve is having and address to the call, so responders could respond effectively. Also there seems to be a Mic at the bottom for audio that doesn't seem to work, or I don't know how to turn it on. Otherwise I thing it is a great app... Just change those two issues and it will be on POINT!

Marc- The incident list is only for reference... you are not expected to respond to any of these events. Only the special 'CPR Needed' alert in the event of an SCA within 1/4 mi of your location. Agencies must provide an audio feed to us to appear in the app. If the audio switch is greyed-out, the agency does not provide streaming audio.

What's new

• New map layer for stations.
• Support for additional call types.
• Significant new functionality for professional responders.
• Stability improvements and bug fixes.
