I like this app, but I am glad it was free. I wish it was a little more in-depth like my physical-bound book I carry in my emergency first aid kit. But, I like it because it offers some very good tips on some of the more major problems that one can encounter - heart attacks, stroke, broken bones, shock, and burns. I like that it does offer some small video clips of some of the techniques, too. I like the quiz it comes with, as well. Overall, I really like it. If you're not an EMT, then it's something you should have on hand. I like to have it available for when I'm on vacation and away from my bigger, more detailed book.

The fact that it is free was a plus but asking for a donation every time you open it is over the top.

Really nice app. Good features & well organized. I haven't needed it in a high stress situation but seems like it will be easy to find what you need for just about any emergency.

good for "just in case" . Everyone should have this installed in case of an emergency they have other apps as well

I remember seeing the American Red Cross First Aid home manual in my parent's bookcase, ready for any emergency. Now we have this app, which brings that necessary utility to everyone with an Android device. As I browsed through the app, I found that it is easy to find the information, and there are even videos to help you in times of emergency. And, it's free, a gift to the world from the ARC. It was easy to download, it works very well on my Kindle Fire, I can't say enough good things about it. Thanks, American Red Cross, you continue to show how much you care for others, and thanks Amazon for putting this app in your store.

Very good and useful app. Great app for everyone to have. I love the fact that it is interactive, too. For instance, if you are in emergency mode and choose unconscious, it asks if the person is breathing. Tap "no" and it instructs you to give chest compressions. Additionally, it had an option for if you are CPR certified, to give CPR at the correct ratio. However, I did not see an option for infant CPR. I think it is a great app for everyone to have, though as you never know when you may be in an emergency situation requiring first aid.

First aid isn't used often enough to keep it fresh in your mind. This app is an excellent tool to do just that. Information is brief but enough to take care of the situation especially if you've had the training.

The problem I have is the develeloper over did it for instance why hide the answers to the questions (not the test questions)? For whatever reason not enough space was given for the tap to work effectively and can get annoying!

But the information is excellent and easy reach on both my Kindle and iPhone.

I am an avid emergency prep and emergency medical learner. I used to be a wilderness responder and now I have the basic cpr and first aid certifications. This app allows me to track what I have and currently need for my families emergency kit; as well as the kit for my dog. The app also has a nice quiz section where you can test your knowledge on a variety of medical information. I am not sure if it only works with wifi (If so I would take away one star). This app is highly informative. I recommend this app and I early do so.
