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.

I really love this app and use it almost daily. I would only make one minor change to the app's button. I have accidentally opened iHeart Radio's app numerous times because it looks similar, especially when woken up in the middle of the night. Both are red and white with a heart. It's hit or miss which agencies are on the app, but I'm thankful for those in my area. I wish more would sign up. The app really does work well and I love being able to see what's going on in my neighborhood.

This is great for notifications of urgent type near you. It allows for selecting types to be notified of. I wish that if I deselect an event type that it not only does not notify but it should not show in the list either. Obviously by deselecting a type I'm not interested in seeing that type. I installed again to see if anything changed. No change. This still shows events not selected in event list. For now I'm uninstalling again, and maybe will recheck in a year or two.

Rich- The incident display is a running list of incidents in an agency jurisdiction. Notifications to particular incidents alert you to those you select and should be at the top of the list when you receieve the notification. That is the design of the app. We have list filtering under consideration.

Very good local oriented app to keep track of events in my area. It seems to be always on and you can turn off the audible alerts if you don't need to hear them. But once you hear a siren normally you can check the app and it's in there within seconds detailing what's going on. Good job authors and keep up the good work. Wish list: wish this included police runs also.

Thanks for the positive feedback. Unfortunately PulsePoint will probably never have law enforcement calls as all police agencies so far have declined for public safety and individual privacy reasons.
