Welcome to the Official Homepage for the "City to the Sunset"
September 14th Washington County Fire District #2 joined together with fire agencies across western Washington County to launch PulsePoint. The free app, which can be downloaded at www.pulsepoint.org notifies citizens of a cardiac arrest patient nearby, directs them to the location, and guides them in performing life-saving hands-only CPR prior to emergency responders arrival. They will only be notified of cardiac incidents in public places, not in private homes. The PulsePoint app will also direct individuals to the nearest public AED.
PulsePoint was initially released by Tualatin Valley Fire & Rescue two years ago and already has local rescues to its credit. As many as 300 sudden cardiac arrest calls happen each year in Washington County. CPR can double or triple a victim’s chance of survival, but only 32% get bystander help. Every minute CPR is delayed, the chance of survival decreases by 10%. Though the odds of survival are among the best in the nation, fire departments need the community’s help to save more lives.
As part of the PulsePoint launch, District #2 is offering a free CPR class to local citizens at the North Plains fire station on Saturday, October 17th from 9:00am to noon. Class size is limited – please contact the office to register at 503-647-9900.
