PulsePoint in Huntsville-Madison County
Huntsville-Madison County 9-1-1 and local emergency medical first responders have joined to bring PulsePoint to our community.
What is PulsePoint?
PulsePoint is a Smartphone app that supports public safety agencies by empowering everyday citizens to provide life-saving assistance to victims of sudden cardiac arrest.
PulsePoint users receive notification if someone nearby is having a cardiac emergency and may require CPR.
If the cardiac emergency is in a public place, the location-aware app will alert trained citizens close to the need for bystander CPR.
In addition to notifying the user’s phone, the app will also direct citizen rescuers to the exact location of the closest publicly accessible Automated External Defibrillator (AED).
