Red Cross First Aid App

Posted by LRF Manager

If a friend or family member was having a heart attack or was choking, would you know how to help them?

The British Red Cross has developed a free app featuring simple, easy advice on 18 everyday first aid scenarios, as well as tips on how to prepare for emergencies, from severe winter weather to road traffic collisions.

With videos, interactive quizzes and simple step-by-step advice, it’s never been easier to learn first aid.

The information you need is all hosted on the app itself, meaning no internet connection is needed, making it fast and easy to access.
