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.

This should be the standard for the entire country. I'm lucky to live in an area that provides all but audio. Anything, and everything dispatched is displayed. I listened via scanner before the digital encrypted transponders became the norm. This helps emensely as our FD's also serve as skywarn during severe weather outbreaks, and have spotted potential tornadoes even before there is a warning on the storm on several occasions.

Great idea in theory, but regular outages occur. Additionally, it only works if your local emergency response agencies are part of the network. Other than that, I found the interface easy to use. The status and calls are easy to read. Addresses are cleared after the completion of emergency service. I found it can be used as a great risk management tool during wildfire season. It can give you an idea of the hazard zones. This app can also provide some insight for winter travel.

Since the last update, I don't get notifications for everything. I have all types of calls checked but only seem to get medical emergencies with a couple other things every once in awhile. When the news agencies are reporting fatal traffic accidents and structure fires at Walmart, but the app doesn't show them, it's obviously not working properly...
