Do you know cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR)? It can mean the difference between life and death, and Sumter County has worked hard to bring the PulsePoint mobile app to our citizens. The application allows the public to leverage their smart phone’s capabilities to notify them when there is a need for CPR in their immediate vicinity.
This life-saving technology has already proven itself across the country and is live in Sumter. Now you can download the PulsePoint app from your app store for free to get started. If you do not know CPR or want a refresher, you can contact Sumter County at 352-689-4400 to learn about CPR training opportunities available throughout the county.
Smart 911 is a service without additional cost that allows citizens to create a safety profile that includes any information they want first responders to have when responding to their call. In the event there is a need to dial 9-1-1, the caller’s Smart 911 profile will appear on the call taker computer screen.
The PSAP (Public Safety Answering Point) remains the first point of access to emergency services and each advancement in technology has improved our ability to respond to the community.
