Red Cross Introduces App for iPhones and Androids

As part of their lifesaving mission, the Red Cross now has a cool new Red Cross First Aid App for iPhones and Androids. It gives you instant step by step instructions and video on how to respond to the most common first aid emergencies like when someone is bleeding, choking, or unconscious.  It also tells you what to do in a disaster like hurricanes and earthquakes.  Here’s a youtube video to show how it works:

The Red Cross also offers a free National Shelter System App for iPhones that shows the location of all open Red Cross shelters throughout the country.  The app not only maps the location of a shelter, but also shows current capacity and population. To download the app, users can visit the Apple store and search "American Red Cross shelters."  Here’s youtube video to show how it works:
