The American Red Cross has developed a hurricane app and a First Aid app. With the hurricane app it possible to monitor local conditions based on NOAA alerts, to locate Red Cross shelters, to develop a checklist for preparation, find help, and let others know you are okay, even if there is a power outage.
To download the hurricane app via a link, call “**REDCROSS” (**73327677). You can also download the hurricane app from the iTunes or Google Play app stores.
The First Aid app provides access to information needed to handle the most common first aid emergencies. Videos, animations and interactive quizzes are included along with safety tips. Content is pre-loaded so Internet access is not necessary.
