Connect with Skagit County EMS through the free PulsePoint Respond App

Skagit County EMS is pleased to bring you the PulsePoint Respond app. PulsePoint is like an AMBER alert for sudden cardiac arrest events occurring in public places (never private residences). It uses location-based technology to alert CPR-trained community members to a sudden cardiac arrest in their immediate vicinity so they can get to the victim first and start hands-only CPR in those critical, life-saving minutes before first responders are able to arrive.

In addition, the companion app, PulsePoint AED, allows users to report and update public AED (automatic external defibrillator) locations so that community members can find a nearby AED when a cardiac emergency occurs. Skagit 911 dispatchers will also be able to access and share these AED locations with 911 callers.

Find and download the app on the Apple App Store or Google Play. Select “Get Started,” follow the prompts, choose the agency you want to follow, then tap “Finish.” You’re all set!
