VIDEO: Responding to emergencies will be faster than ever for Madison firefighters and paramedics. Off-duty first responders will now be able to provide life-saving care, thanks to an app. When it comes to cardiac emergenies, seconds can mean the difference between life and death. “The longer it takes to get a 911 responder there or somebody doing bystander CPR, the less likely it is the person’s going to recover,” Che Stedman, Asst. Chief of Personnel for the Madison Fire Department, said. To cut down on response times and save more lives, the Madison Fire Department is partnering with PulsePoint.
