The Fire Department is in the process of developing a new CPR instruction program.  If you are interested in being placed on our list for future classes or require more information, please contact the Fire Department's Emergency Medical Services Coordinator, Dan Gerard, at 337-2106.


PulsePoint is an enterprise-class, software-as-a-service (SaaS) pre-arrival solution designed to support public safety agencies working to improve cardiac arrest survival rates through improved bystander performance and active citizenship. Where adopted, the PulsePoint app empowers everyday citizens to provide life‐saving assistance to victims of Sudden Cardiac Arrest (SCA). Application users who have indicated they are trained in cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) and willing to assist in case of an emergency can now be notified if someone nearby is having a cardiac emergency and may require CPR. If the cardiac emergency is in a public place, the location-aware application will alert trained citizens in the vicinity of the need for bystander CPR simultaneous with the dispatch of advanced medical care. The application also directs these citizen rescuers to the exact location of the closest publicly accessible Automated External Defibrillator (AED). The AFD encourages all citizens to trained in CPR to obtain the PulsePoint app to help us protect the public by initiating early CPR. 


 The Alameda Fire Department has four fire stations strategically located throughout the City to serve the community. Groups of citizens, students, Cub Scouts, Brownies, and similar organizations can be given tours of the City's fire stations. Each group will be briefed on the responsibilities for the station, its personnel, and the assigned equipment.  Tours are available Monday through Saturday between 9:30 a.m. and 3:30 p.m. Scheduling requests are needed four weeks in advance, and tours are suggested for people five years and older.

 Arrangements for tours and additional information are available by calling Allison Rigau at (510) 337-2121 or by sending email to
