App lets you volunteer to save a life
Sometimes there is no time to wait for am ambulance.
There are at least two of these apps--GoodSAM and PulsePoint.
The GoodSAM has two versions--the alerter and the responder. Those with an emergency can call for help with the Alerter--giving their exact location and calling the EMTs. The Responder is owned by people with specialized training--so they can be alerted.
PulsePoint is aimed mostly at cardiac events--those who can resuscitate are wanted.
We need more of this. It takes a village...
Go to www.goodsamapp.org or www.pulsepoint.org for more info.
Finally--a good use for those darn phones!
