Video: Dennis Herrera and the San Francisco Fire App
At CityCampSF City Attorney and mayoral candidate Dennis Herrera showed off the San Francisco Fire app. It applies a crowdsource model to first responders: CPR trained individuals register with the app; in an emergency if they are nearby they can often respond well before first responders. The app also stores the exact location of all public defribrillators in the city. Cardiac patients often can’t be saved because in an emergency it is difficult to know where the nearest defribrillator is.
