Fargo, ND (WDAY TV) - The difference between life and death could come down to a new Smartphone app.

Monday, Fargo and Moorhead fire departments announced the launch of Pulse Point.

It is an app that provides notifications for CPR and other emergencies in the immediate area of the person using the app.

F-M fire departments hope the app can save lives.

Jeff Wallin- Asst. Chief, Moorhead Fire Dept.: “It’s our hope that everybody in the community will download the application. Think about a friend, family worker, or coworker. If they suffer a problem right around the block; that instead of having somebody three to five minutes away, if you had somebody that was just one minute away around the corner… That could keep somebody alive until additional help can arrive can make a huge impact for everybody in the Fargo-Moorhead area.”

The app is up and running, so feel free to download it on your smart phone.
