In 2015, Silverdale Rotary donated a portion of Duck Race proceeds to Central Kitsap Fire and Rescue (CKFR) to help launch the life-saving PulsePoint smartphone app.  We are proud to share an excerpt from a February 19, 2016 press release from CKFR:
 
Kitsap County First in Western Washington to Implement PulsePoint.
A new smart phone app is now available to give Kitsap County residents the ability to save a life. The PulsePoint app notifies CPR trained citizens of nearby cardiac arrests and is accessible now in Kitsap County.
PulsePoint is integrated into the county’s 911 system and alerts CPR-trained bystanders in the immediate vicinity of a public cardiac emergency, so they can get to the scene and start CPR in the critical minutes before emergency medical teams arrive.”

In conjunction, CKFR is also gearing up for the FREE mass CPR event to be held at the Silverdale YMCA on February 28th.  For more information or to register, please click here: http://www.kitsapcountycpr.org/
