• Effective immediately we will be deleting, without notice, any negative threads or posts that deal with the use of encryption and streaming of scanner audio.

    We've noticed a huge increase in rants and negative posts that revolve around agencies going to encryption due to the broadcasting of scanner audio on the internet. It's now worn out and continues to be the same recycled rants. These rants hijack the threads and derail the conversation. They no longer have a place anywhere on this forum other than in the designated threads in the Rants forum in the Tavern.

    If you violate these guidelines your post will be deleted without notice and an infraction will be issued. We are not against discussion of this issue. You just need to do it in the right place. For example:

This little app is pretty nifty, it is coordinated through area dispatch centers and when somebody calls 911 for choking or cardiac arrest event it sends out an alert to anybody who is cpr trained (and signed up) so it lessens the time from sudden cardiac arrest to time of compressions. Another cool feature is that you can see all the active incidents going on in that area, so it is a pretty cool tool when used in conjunction with or without scanner.

As silly as it sounds, I wish that they had a PC version of this. We're using it in a com center to monitor fire and ems runs to our facility but I'm having to do it by emulating Android. The browser version isn't reliable enough to run 24/7 nor does it auto update.

I believe you can use google chrome and set it to refresh every 20 or so seconds. It's called auto refresh or something.

I run it 24/7 on 2 PCs with no problems, using the Google Chrome Auto Refresh Plus 2.0.6.

One thing though, they promote this to allow people to lend aid but they don't include the address of the EMS runs, so it's useless for this purpose. Great to follow fire and traffic runs though.

They don't include the address in the initial screen showing dispatches, but if you look at the map, the pin is right on the location of the incident.

They hide the address for privacy reasons, but for a CPR or something like that, supposedly the address does show up. I've never seen it used for that purpose though as of yet. It's more of a glorified scanner/stripped MDT right now than anything.

At the dispatch center where I work, we utilize the pulsepoint app, when we put the call into CAD we have to put it in as a different call type then just an EMS call so it goes out to the app. From what I have heard, they have already had a save from it.

I've tried that, but not had much luck with that particular PC being able to run Chrome for days on end without crashing. Also the android app is much easier on the eyes from across the room then the webpage version. Even if you up the text size it's still white text on a light gray background.
