PulsePoint Respond

The Villages Public Safety Department (VPSD) and Sumter County Fire and EMS (SCFEMS) are partnering to bring PulsePoint Respond.  PulsePoint Respond is an enterprise-class, software-as-a-service pre-arrival solution designed to support public safety agencies working to improve cardiac arrest survival rates through improved bystander performance and active citizenship.   PulsePoint Respond will alert users of a cardiac arrest in a public place.  This program is NOT replacing ReadyAlert as it is not designed for residential AED groups. 
Users who have indicated they are trained in cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) and are willing to assist in an emergency can now be notified if someone nearby is having a cardiac arrest and needs CPR.  If the cardiac arrest is in a public place, the application will alert trained citizens in the vicinity (1/4 mile) of the need for bystander CPR simultaneous with the dispatch of advanced medical care.
The purpose of the PulsePoint App is to increase the survival rates of cardiac arrest victims by:

  • Reducing collapse-to-CPR times by increasing citizen awareness of cardiac events beyond a traditional “witnessed” area.
  • Reducing collapse-to-defibrillation times by increasing awareness of public access defibrillator (AED) locations through real-time mapping of nearby devices

Communities and cities across the United States are using PulsePoint Respond.  In Florida, currently Orlando and Sunrise are using PulsePoint Respond.  Anyone wishing to download the App can do so by visiting  To view a coverage map showing the locations of agencies using this system, for additional information or to download the App, please visit  For additional information, please click on the header of this announcement.
