Don't Know CPR? There's an American Red Cross App For That
This free app isn't supposed to be a substitute for American Red Cross first aid training, but it's good in a pinch.
First aid emergencies are much less scary if you know what to do and a new app created by the American Red Cross aims to do that.
The First Aid by American Red Cross app, created for both Android and iPhone users, offers step-by-step instructions on first aid including videos and animations, preparedness tips for natural disasters and a 9-1-1 button for big emergencies.
It's like having a friend who's an emergency medical technician on speed dial.
But it's not a substitute for in-person first aid training which the American Red Cross chapters offers regularly.
The Summit County chapter offers classes in the new hands-only CPR, babysitting, lifeguarding and more.
