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

Today I received a downloadable app from the British Red Cross, which they asked me to share.

The free app features 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 accidents.

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. Best of all, it’s free. Get this essential app on your smartphone now.”
