Fire Department App Informs You of Nearby Emergencies

Fire Department is a new iOS app that alerts of you nearby emergencies so you can offer your assistance if possible.

The iPhone application is the first of its kind! By providing a virtual window into San Ramon Valley’s 9-1-1 dispatch center, iPhone users now have real-time access to emergency activity occurring in the community.

The app empowers those within the San Ramon Valley borders to provide life-saving assistance to victims of Sudden Cardiac Arrest (SCA). Application users who have indicated they are trained in cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) can now be notified if someone nearby is having a cardiac emergency and may require CPR. If the cardiac emergency is in a public place, the application, using sophisticated GPS technology, will alert citizens in the vicinity of the need for CPR. The application also directs these citizen rescuers to the exact location of the closest public access Automated External Defibrillator (AED).

Don’t live in the San Ramon Valley? You’ll still find listening to the live action of our dispatchers, firefighters and paramedics informative and interesting.

What's New In This Version:
- New location-aware notification option added for possible CPR/AED events.
- New feature provides option to display Public Access Defibrillators (AEDs) on map.
- Enhanced map pins now graphically indicate incident types.
- Added "pull to refresh" functionality.
- Misc fixes and enhancements.

You can download Fire Department from the App Store for free.
