The San Ramon Valley Fire Protection District created the Fire Department app in response to the harsh realization that when it comes to saving someone's life in a cardiac arrest, time is a crucial commodity.

The app is a direct approach to providing help to those who need it sooner rather than later. The Fire Department app sends a notification to the closest CPR-trained individual within the vicinity of a person who has made a call to EMS. The aim of the Fire Department app is to enhance the chances of a trained individual finding someone in need exponentially increases.
