These informational notifications provide an early heads-up to local threats such as wildland fires, flooding and utility emergencies. You can even monitor live dispatch radio traffic for most PulsePoint-connected communities with a simple tap on the speaker icon.

Great app but I would like more features
This is a really good app, and I have used it for a while. Being a Junior Firefighter its good to know whats going on in your department and community, but their are still some features that could use some improvement. 1. Sometimes the app shows that my agency Suffolk County Fire and Rescue does not exist when I enter the app, I just re-download it and its fine. But that gets annoying 2. Make a special feature where it would only alert people that are certified in CPR and have a way to link official certification places to your account, like American Heart Association. And only page the people that have proof of certification. But still make the app available to all. 3. Be able to customize alert sounds and what type of alerts you want to receive, and classify the calls in a severity scale like 1-4 4 being fatal. Because the tone is made to get your attention and since I am still in school and it goes off it is awkward. Just want at vibration so I can feel it in my pocket. 4. Release more information about how to become or classes to become a “Verified Responder” Everything else is good and I like the new update, nice a clean. -Ryan
Great App! Certainly room for improvement
I have to say I love this app! This is exactly what I have been looking for. After reading some other reviews/requests, I agree with all of the upgrades that could happen in the future. The thing that I would like to see is the exact address listed for the calls, and the exact description of what it is. As of right now it only shows the road (no house number) and if it’s a medical emergency. It would be more helpful to see something more along the lines of “Charlie response, 67 year old male, showing signs of cardiac arrest.” Something a little more descriptive would be nice. With all that said I love this app and am looking forward to seeing any improvements in the future!
Ideas for improvement
This is an amazing app and love being able to listen to the fire ground dispatches. Two ideas that I would like to see added to PulsePoint would be to have an option to be alerted for vehicle fires; i am aware that you can currently but they are grouped into traffic accidents additionally. There are many many car accidents a day and it would be nice to filter out just the car fires versus both car accidents and vehicle fires. Also when you click on a call and it takes you to the map, could you possible have “pin drops” of stations within that city we are currently following? Thanks for everything you guys do! Paul
