Orland Fire Protection District news

Excerpts from

A new program is launching in Orland Park that will alert citizens trained in CPR when they receive emergency calls about cardiac arrest near them.

Imagine if thousands of average citizens were ready and able to respond to an emergency in their community.

The district launched a new app called PulsePoint that alerts people who are trained in CPR if someone is in cardiac arrest nearby.

The Orland Fire Protection District is the second fire department in the region to adopt the app. Naperville has successfully utilized this technology for roughly 10 years.

For a department that responds to several cardiac arrests a week, and an average response time of four and a half minutes, every second counts.

While the Orland Fire Protection District covers nine suburbs, PulsePoint is launching first in Orland Park, with hopes to expand into the other areas in the future.
