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.

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.

Please bring back color icons for events. Color icons are inherently more intuitive than monochrome ones, and if artsy design is taking priority over practicality and usability in an app like this that's not good. Edit: good luck explaining how making something stand out less makes it easier to see at a glance. What flawed logic, wow. I guess I shouldn't expect much considering that offensive "map/list" button is still in the way for no reason. I'd get screenshots if you didn't force updates.

Hi Alex- Again, PulsePoint has never had color incident icons, so there's nothing to bring back. FWIW... we don't force updates. You can choose to auto-update apps or not in the Play Store. 1. Open the Play Store and tap your profile picture on the top right. 2. Go to Settings, select Network preferences, and go to Auto-update apps.

Very good app, I'd like to see some minor changes. For example, Explosion shouldn't be considered a utility emergency. I'd like to see it moved to either a fire or it's own catagory. I'd like to be notified of an Explosion but couldn't care less about other utility incidents. I'm also seeing a lot of calls not clearing to recent even though no units are showing assigned. All units have gone gray.
