Request AED-needed Alerts

Are you part of a neighborhood AED program or Workplace Safety Team? Multiple participants can subscribe to a single AED.

If you are not the listed responsible party for an AED but would have access to it in an emergency, you can request alerts by tapping the Request AED-needed Alerts button.

A Responsible Party may authorize others to receive AED-needed Alerts for a device they manage. These individuals should be known, trustworthy, and have physical proximity and access to the AED. Responsible parties will receive an email when a subscriber request is initiated. This request can be approved or denied directly within the email, or in the PulsePoint AED app. An approval can be revoked at any time.

Receiving an Alert

When a cardiac arrest occurs near a registered AED, subscribers to that AED receive an AED-needed Alert requesting they deliver the device to the reported location. Subscribers can choose the type of alert they’ll receive. Critical Alerts override the Do Not Disturb setting on the device and play the alert sound even when the device is muted. Time Sensitive and normal alerts are also supported and can use Focus settings to temporarily silence notifications during certain periods or activities.

View street-level imagery of where the AED is needed with Destination View. Tap the Destination View thumbnail to view an interactive 360° daytime panorama of the destination address.

You can receive AED-needed Alerts on your phone, watch, or tablet.

Subscriber Testing

Responsible parties can independently conduct testing for individual subscribers using the Send Test AED-needed Alert button. Subscribers must be signed in to PulsePoint AED with Alerts On to receive a notification.

This feature allows subscribers to test their devices and gain confidence and familiarity with notification sounds and appearance. This testing can be conducted by the responsible party independent of the emergency communications center.

AED Subscriptions

Responsible parties can view the AEDs they manage from the Profile tab.

My AED Subscriptions
Users can view their subscribed AEDs from the Profile tab. Tap an AED card to manage alert settings.

Note: AEDs in a user's Watchlist are also accessible from the Profile tab. A watchlist is a user-defined collection of AEDs. For example, your watchlist might include all the AEDs at your business or all the AEDs that you inspect and maintain. Essentially a watchlist allows you to limit the display of AEDs to devices of particular interest to you.
