The app alerts SCDF volunteers to nearby cardiac arrest cases. The volunteers can immediately take up the case, and render first aid while waiting for the ambulance. The SCDF’s 995 Ops Center works in tandem with the app. They are the ones who call the volunteers. They may also ask the volunteers to guide the ambulance to the incident site.

Hundreds of people suffer from out-of-hospital cardiac arrest every year. The survival rate is only 3%. With the MyResponder app, SCDF is hoping to increase the survival rate.
