Red Cross Mobile App? Yes, Yes, and Yes

ARC Mobile App - Earthquakes

Got your Red Cross Mobile App?

First aid info? Earthquake prep? Whether you’re preparing for or reacting to a disaster, chances are that the Red Cross has an app for that.  And guess what? Totally Unprepared totally endorses these!

No surprise there.  I mean think about it.  Over half of American adults have ditched their dumbphones for a smart phone. And I would be willing to bet a pretty penny that 99% of those folks go to bed with their phones, check their phones while on holiday, and let’s face it, love their smartphone more than a kid loves cake!  Hmm cake…

While admitting you have a problem is the first step, it doesn’t all have to be a bad thing.  The Red Cross’ handy dandy mobile apps can serve as a one-stop shop to staying informed with the latest information, whether it’s earthquakes, wildfires or the new and improved Hands-Only CPR. Okay, that was Vinnie but how could we leave him or 80’s music out?

But getting back to the point.  The Red Cross has a number or robust mobile apps that will help you stay prepared and safe during the next apocalypse.  Still not convinced?  See for yourself by downloading a free First Aid, Earthquake, or even a Wildfire mobile app and find all of these nifty features available at your fingertips.
