PulsePoint App launched with the intent to help save lives

Suffolk County First Municipality on the East Coast to Implement PulsePoint Smartphone App Bellone: The Launch of the PulsePoint App will help to improve response times for residents experiencing Sudden Cardiac Arrest

The Pulse Point mobile app alerts CPR-trained bystanders to someone nearby having a sudden cardiac arrest that may require CPR, so that CPR can begin immediately and the App directs these citizen rescuers, with a live map, to the nearest Automatic External Defibrillator (AED).
 
Citizens who are CPR trained can download the app via the Apple Store or Android Market and indicate that they are willing to assist if needed.  When a 911 call is received by Suffolk Fire Rescue and Emergency Services reporting someone unconscious, unresponsive and likely needing CPR, FRES will dispatch emergency resources as they normally do but in addition, software running at PulsePoint will send an alert to nearby CPR trained citizens who have registered with PulsePoint to be able to assist with CPR as well as provide the location of a nearby AED.  This application will assist in improving Sudden Cardiac Survival rates by empowering citizens to be able to help and respond.

The application is currently available in the appropriate smart phone market free.
To install the PulsePoint app simply search PulsePoint in the Apple App Store or in Android Apps on Google Play.  After download, you accept terms and conditions.  Then select "Suffolk County".  Enable CPR notifications.
