North Lake Tahoe Fire Protection District is asking CPR-trained residents to become part of the free PulsePoint program in Incline Village and Crystal Bay, Nev. The mobile app alerts CPR-trained residents of cardiac events in their vicinity so they may administer aid, while simultaneously helping build a comprehensive automated external defibrillator (AED) registry and informing the community of emergency activity.
PulsePoint Respond subscribers who have indicated they are trained in CPR and willing to assist in case of an emergency can be notified if someone nearby is having a cardiac arrest and may need CPR. The application also directs potential rescuers to the location of the closest AED.
The companion app, PulsePoint AED, helps build the community registry by using PulsePoint AED to describe the location of an AED and add a picture. This information is then made available to dispatchers and anyone using the PulsePoint Respond app. | nltfpd.org
