When a person needs CPR, he needs it fast. And Evergreen Fire/Rescue paramedic John Locke is promoting a smart-phone app that would improve rescue times by getting qualified members of the public involved.
The app, “PulsePoint,” alerts CPR-trained users that someone within a quarter-mile is in need of cardio-pulmonary resuscitation. It also gives the location of the nearest defibrillator.
Locke said that 32 percent of the time, when a person in a public place goes into cardiac arrest, no one steps in to perform CPR.
