BAFD IS THE FIRST AGENCY IN OKLAHOMA TO USE PULSEPOINT
On October 25, 2017, Broken Arrow Fire Department became the first emergency medical service in the state of Oklahoma to use PulsePoint, a mobile app that alerts citizens trained in hands-only cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) when someone in a nearby public place suffers sudden cardiac arrest. When the City’s emergency dispatchers receive a sudden cardiac arrest call, an alert is sent through the app at the same time as emergency responders are dispatched. The app also notifies users of any nearby automated external defibrillators (AED). Special thanks go to Saint Francis Hospital South for providing the funding needed to bring PulsePoint to Broken Arrow.
Anyone who is trained in CPR is encouraged to download the PulsePoint app free through the Google Play Store or the Apple App Store. Once the app is installed, select the Broken Arrow Fire Department from the agency listings to receive alerts. Users may follow more than one agency.
