The Malaysian Red Crescent Society (“MRCS”), with support from the International Federation of Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies (“IFRC”), has launched the country’s first-ever First Aid mobile application. It is the first of its kind in Malaysia in which the app delivers first aid advices through the use of videos, animation and interactive quizzes.

During an emergency, a lack of first aid knowledge could lead to lasting injuries and disabilities, and even unnecessary deaths. As a national society that is advocating the importance of first aid, we believe that having this mobile app allows users to access crucial, life-saving information at the touch of their fingertips. However, it is important to note the app provides educational tips on first-aid and in no way replaces proper first aid training and certification nor the need to seek medical advice where necessary.” – Dato’ Sayed A. Rahman bin Sayed Mohd, Secretary General of the MRCS

The app, which will feature content in both English and Bahasa Malaysia, is loaded with information on everyday first aid scenarios as well as tips on how to respond to emergencies, ranging from burns and broken bones to asthma attacks. It is a free download on the Apple App Store and Google Play Store.
