PulsePoint Respond is a 911-connected app that can immediately inform you of emergencies occurring in your community and can request your help when CPR is needed nearby. The City of Lincoln is a PulsePoint community.(PulsePoint Respond is not available in all areas. The service is only offered where adopted by the local public safety agency.)

A CALL TO ACTION
Sudden cardiac arrest can happen to anyone, at any time, but PulsePoint Respond empowers CPR-trained citizens to help improve patient outcomes and save lives by reducing collapse-to-CPR and collapse-to-deﬁbrillation times. And when citizens are more aware of and engaged with the health of their community, they become better partners with your agency—and a stronger link in your response efforts.
PROXIMITY TO VICTIM
For extremely time-sensitive emergencies like cardiac arrest, notifying community first responders that are in the immediate vicinity of an event, simultaneously with the conventional Fire/EMS response, offers the potential to improve outcomes. By expanding situational awareness beyond the purview of a traditional witnessed arrest radius, the opportunity to instantly draw skilled individuals, including off-duty health care professionals, grows, enabling critical life-sustaining BLS interventions to begin sooner and more often, and potentially of higher quality.
