Arizona Looks to Pick Up Life-Saving LBS App that Connects Cardiac Arrest Victims, Volunteers

He told me that Arizona will be partnering with the San Ramon Valley Fire Protection District to implement and study a new mobile app that links volunteers and cardiac arrest victims through dispatch and smartphone alerts with GPS mapping.

Last night, I interviewed the creator of the app on Gov 2.0 Radio. He said that the most important thing communities can do right now is ensure they have accurate and public inventories and maps of their AEDs.
