Summary

Provides simple advice on how to perform first aid in 18 everyday, commonplace circumstances in which first aid is required (such as road-traffic accidents, and severe winter weather). Facilities offered include animations, checklists, expert tips, videos, and interactive quizzes (the latter leading to achievement badges which can be shared with friends on Facebook and Twitter). All information is contained in-app, with no Internet connection required. Finally, the app supplies details about the activities of the British Red Cross, and refers to volunteering opportunities and Red Cross first-aid courses. [Note that the Red Cross in many other countries each produce their own versions of this app. One featured on this website is the app of the Svenska Röda Korset (Swedish Red Cross), Röda Korset Första hjälpen.]
