On Monday morning, March 10, 2014, the PulsePoint foundation will divide Los Angeles County Fire Department (LACoFD) incidents across 9 distinct divisions within the app (fig. 1). These 9 divisions will include their respective 22 battalions following the internal operational hierarchy of the department (fig. 2). This change is being implemented at the request of LACoFD to provide greater granularity of incident displays, alerts, radio channels, etc. within the app (fig. 3).

Once this change is implemented users will be able follow any division, which are simply smaller geographical portions of the jurisdiction. Existing followers of LACoFD will be automatically transitioned to Division 3 (the agency as a whole will no longer be available). To find the division you desire simply search a city name in the Agencies screen or read the profile information on the division pages. A Division by City reference table is also provided below.

Users with Apple devices currently following LACoFD should force close the PulsePoint app and restart it after this change is in effect on Monday.

Note: CPR alerts work across all agencies. If you have opted-in to receive CPR-needed notifications you will be made aware of nearby events regardless of which agencies/divisions you are following.

Please let us know if you have questions at info@pulsepoint.org.
