Lifesaving Professionals

BOTH ON-DUTY AND OFF

The PulsePoint Foundation salutes our ‘always in service’ responders.

EMS Strong SponsorPulsePoint is a proud sponsor of EMS Week and the EMS Strong campaign, presented by ACEP, in partnership with NAEMT.

On a daily basis off-duty professionals are demonstrating their 24/7/365 commitment by carrying PulsePoint and responding to nearby time critical emergencies. If you haven’t already done so, please download the PulsePoint Respond mobile app and be part of our always in service initiative. The chain-of-survival is only as strong as we make it.
