Erlanger

PulsePoint

On May 9, 2014 Oregon firefighter Scott Brawner was exercising at a health club when he got an alert on his smartphone. The notification was from PulsePoint, an app originally designed and built by Northern Kentucky University.  It was the idea of former California fire chief Richard Price.

The 9-1-1 connected mobile app is designed to alert CPR-trained citizens of Sudden Cardiac Arrest (SCA)  emergencies in their proximity.

Toyota plans to relocate nearly 1600 jobs from its Erlanger, KY facility. The car company says it is building a new headquarters in Plano, Texas.

Beginning this summer, approximately 1,000 jobs at Toyota Motor Engineering & Manufacturing North America, Inc. (TEMA) in Erlanger will be relocated in small batches to Texas. The majority, however, won't move until the new headquarters are built, which could be in late 2016 or early 2017.
