Corona Rotary Supports PulsePoint and Honors Fallen Firefighters

Corona Rotary has donated $15,00 to CFD for PulsePoint start up. It’s New Technology that improves response time to cardiac arrest victims in the community.

PulsePoint’s website explains their technology:

“You know the difference early CPR and defibrillation can make in a Sudden Cardiac Arrest event. Fifty-seven percent of U.S. adults say they’ve had CPR training, and most would be willing to use CPR or an AED to help save a stranger’s life. Yet only 11% say they’ve used CPR in an actual emergency—that’s a number we can increase together.

When that emergency call comes in your team will be ready. But what if someone was already at the scene, applying lifesaving CPR and defibrillation until the EMS team arrived? With PulsePoint, your dispatch system immediately alerts CPR-trained bystanders about a nearby SCA event through the free PulsePoint Respond mobile app, and lets them know the location of the closest AED.”

 

 

The Corona Rotary Club also donated funds to the Corona Firefighters Association to create memorial plaques to honor the city's fallen firefighters.
