PulsePoint Responder – In Her Own Words

On March 27th 2013, the PulsePoint mobile app deployed in Tualatin Valley Fire and Rescue notified three nearby citizen responders that someone close to their location was in need of CPR. Heather Roms, who is an RN for Legacy Emanuel Medical Center in Portland, was just leaving a nearby business when she received the PulsePoint notification on her smartphone. Heather responded and began CPR until EMS crews arrived. Heather stated that she heard about the app from her mother who works at a nearby middle school and was happy to be available to respond and help. Watch her story below.
