First Aid PH: A no-nonsense app for emergency preparedness
MANILA, Philippines – The Philippine Red Cross now has its own first aid and disaster preparedness application for smartphones and tablets.
Called First Aid PH, the app provides information for handling a number of different situations, as well as preparedness tests for a variety of possible incidents.
The app is no-nonsense, choosing instead to provide the information you need quickly and accurately. For instance, starting the app leads into the learning tab, which provides first aid techniques for everything from sprains to allergic reactions.
There's a separate tab on the app for emergency preparedness tips, allowing users to set up emergency kits, or learn (and teach others) how to prepare for events like a possible earthquake or typhoon.
Yet another tab provides quizzes for users to test their knowledge of first aid on. One additional tab provides information on the developers and on the Red Cross. It also offers users a means of supporting the Philippine Red Cross, such as by giving donations.
