Boca Raton Fire Rescue Services recently launched a lifesaving app called PulsePoint. the smart-phone app links to the 911 dispatch system to notify CPR-trained citizens at the same time first responders are contacted when someone is experiencing cardiac arrest in a nearby, public location. PulsePoint provides the exact location of the individual in distress as well as the nearest automatic external defibrillator (AED). To learn more, or if you would like to get CPR-certified, please contact Fire Rescue Services or visit our CPR & Other Class Schedules webpage.

WPTV 5 interviews Fire Chief Thomas Wood and Deputy Chief David Woodside about the benefits of the department's new weather station instruments at each Fire station. These instruments help measure critical weather information such as wind speeds during a hurricane. This allows emergency responders to make decisions as to when they are allowed to bring their vehicles out during a storm while they are working to keep our City and residents safe.
