PulsePoint, your local emergency dispatch system immediately alerts
CPR-trained citizens about a nearby sudden cardiac arrest event through
the free PulsePoint Respond mobile app, and directs them to the exact
location of the closest public access AED (automated external
defibrillator). The free PulsePoint AED mobile app lets citizens
register and update AED locations so that emergency responders---nearby
citizens trained in CPR or local firefighters, police or medics---can find an AED close to them when a cardiac emergency occurs.
