Red Cross first aid app hits 1 million downloads

The British Red Cross’s first aid app for Apple, Android & Blackberry phones has reached over one million downloads.

Joe Mulligan, head of first aid education, said: “What the download numbers show is that, as a society, we are increasingly turning to technology and the simplicity it offers.

“In an emergency, people want first aid information at their fingertips and our app offers the reassurance of telling them what to do.”

The app has proved so successful that the American Red Cross has also released a version tailored for the US audience.
