What: Prince George’s County Executive Rushern L. Baker III and Fire Chief Marc S. Bashoor will join representatives from CTIA Wireless Foundation to announce the PGFD’s participation in PulsePoint, a free mobile app that alerts CPR trained citizens of cardiac arrests in their vicinity and enables them to provide potentially life-saving CPR.
A live demonstration of hands-only CPR will be performed. Bystander CPR is critical to the successful resuscitation of sudden cardiac arrest patients.
