Montgomery County launches app to help those in need of CPR

NORRISTOWN, Pa. - Montgomery County will launch a new app that can help those who are experiencing a medical emergency.

According to a press release, Montgomery will be the first county in Southeastern Pennsylvania to have this technology. 

The Pulsepoint app alerts people trained in CPR when another person goes into sudden cardiac arrest nearby. 

The app directs the trained individuals to someone in need of CPR within a quarter mile, which allows them to start resuscitation before first responders would arrive, according to the release. 

Officials plan to launch the app Wednesday.
