Red Cross has app offering lifesaving advice

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) -- A Tennessee Red Cross official says a new company app allows users to have expert lifesaving advice in the palm of their hand.

Joel Sullivan, CEO of the Tennessee Volunteer Region, said the first aid app is simple to use and can be activated anywhere.

It's the official app for smartphone users, the first in a series to be created by the Red Cross. It gives instant access to information on how to handle the most common first aid situations, and includes videos and interactive quizzes.

The app also includes Red Cross disaster preparedness information for a number of common situations. It's for use on both the Android and iPhone platforms.
