Fairfax County Joins PulsePoint, an App That Saves Lives

PulsePoint Respond Launches in Fairfax County

Fairfax County Fire and Rescue Department announced the official launch of the PulsePoint Respond service in Fairfax County. PulsePoint Respond is a mobile app that allows users to view and receive alerts on calls being responded to by fire departments and emergency medical services.

The goal is to increase the possibility that a victim in cardiac arrest will receive cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) quickly. The app uses the current location of a user and will alert them if someone in their vicinity is in need of CPR.

The PulsePoint app can be downloaded here or your app store.
