The National Safety Council (NSC) First Aid recently announced the launch of their free, digital first aid, CPR and AED reference guide. While designed to support those who have completed the NSC’s First Aid, CPR & AED training course, this ready reference can be a lifesaving tool for anyone.

You can download the app to your Apple device here: and Android device here:

The portable, digital tool is perfect for students and the general public by providing detailed, life-saving steps for various illnesses and injuries.

Below are statistics from the NSC about why this app is so important to have easily accessible:

  • 25% of all emergency room visits can be avoided with basic first aid and CPR certification
  • Sudden cardiac arrest represents 13% of all workplace deaths
  • 4 million workers were injured and 4,113 were killed on the job in 2020, devastating families and costing companies $643 billion
  • 75% of all out-of-hospital heart attacks happen at home
