MANILA, Philippines – “Always first, always ready, always there.”
The Philippine Red Cross (PRC) expands the reach of its quick emergency interventions by introducing the First Aid PH app for iOS and Android on Friday, April 15.
The app will not replace PRC’s first aid skills training, but will give online users a new tool to respond to emergencies, PRC secretary general Gwen Pang said.
