INTRODUCING AN APP THAT CAN SAVE LIVES
Fulton County has been working on improving the response for sudden cardiac arrest.
This free app can ignite the lifesaving potential of CPR-trained citizens and improve cardiac arrest outcomes.
Sudden Cardiac Arrest is not just a job for emergency responders but rather a community-based issue that requires a community-based response, in no other medical situation is there such a vital reliance on the community.
When CPR-trained individuals receive an alert from PulsePoint, it tells them not only where a cardiac arrest event is happening, but also where they can find the nearest AED. But often, data on AED locations can be missing, inaccurate, or simply not detailed enough to make the devices east to find in an emergency. That’s where PulsePoint AED app comes in.
With the free PulsePoint AED app, citizens can help even before a life is in danger by easily identifying public access AEDs throughout the community. Users place the AED location on a map, add business and descriptor information and submit photos of the AED in context of its environment.
This app will also alert you to emergency calls happening in real time. Each department in Fulton County can be followed for a few or all types of calls.
