St. John’s Wales First Aid App
Knowing what to do in the first few minutes of an emergency is vital. The official St John Wales app contains simple step-by-step advice on dealing with injuries such as severe bleeding, burns and scalds and choking, while also giving advice on how to give CPR and other treatments.
The first aid quiz helps you test your knowledge and lets you share your score on social media. The information is hosted on the app itself, meaning that once downloaded, no internet connection is needed. It is fully bilingual in English and Welsh and best of all, it’s free. Get this essential app on your smartphone or tablet now.
Review by Sarah
When would I use it?
I would use it in work at home and when I’m running the kids club. It covers treatment of Adults and kids.
Why would I use it?
Accidents can happen anywhere and it is good to have direct comprehensive information to hand. If I ran a business there is a lot of information for buying first aid equipment and accessing training and maybe making links for positive publicity.
- It has symbols that are consistent throughout. Clicking on these takes you to the relevant linked pages.
- Pages were easy to access.
- The information is straight forward and layed out in step form, under specific headings.
- The pictures are easy to follow.
- You can look at a symptoms list relating to the injury. This may be particularly useful if the person cannot verbally tell you what has happened.
- There are timers set for burns, recovery position under the relevant sections. etc.
- There is a green symbol that once pressed will call the emergency services.
- On the quiz if you get an answer wrong it does not give you the correct answer, just moves on to the next question.
- You cannot reset the timers once started.
- There is no info on mental health first aid emergencies.
