There is an app that is getting help to the people who need it most.

PulsePoint is activated when local fire or ems are dispatched for a cardiac arrest call.

The app is free and is being used in states like California and Arizona.

Health officials say every minute a patient has to wait for CPR the chance of survival drops by 10 percent.
