LACoFD Formally Recognizing PulsePoint App in LA County

By November 11, 2014LACoFD News

Our Department was formally recognized by Fifth District Supervisor Michael D. Antonovich for our work in launching the PulsePoint app in Los Angeles County. Joining Fire Chief Daryl Osby to receive this special recognition was Richard Price, founder of the PulsePoint app and director of the PulsePoint Foundation, and personnel involved in the launch project. As previously reported in Size-Up, PulsePoint is a lifesaving app for CPR-trained citizens to download and use to receive notifications that someone within one quarter of a mile is in need of CPR. Since our Department’s launch last August, over 25,000 citizens have downloaded the app in Los Angeles County. Our Department is also finalizing plans to help train all 100,000 County employees in Hands-Only CPR and PulsePoint. Congratulations to those involved in this game changing project to engage our communities in our mission to save life.
