With 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.
