What is a Registered CPR Responder?

These are community members who have typically been trained in CPR and the use of an Automated External Defibrillator (AED) and are willing to assist if an incident occurs near them. Today, the proximity is set to a half-mile (0.5) radius of the emergency location. If a responder is within that radius, they will receive the alert notification on their smartphone. If they are able to respond, they will indicate so on their smartphone and will be guided to the location (private or public) of the emergency. The map will also display any registered AEDs that are in the area.
