This platform supports a first aider in a medical or emergency situation and is not intended as a substitute for First Aid and CPR training. Get Ready Online Inc. encourages everyone to participate in First Aid and CPR training. In the event where a first aider is unsure of what to do, Emergency Medical Services (call 9-1-1) should be contacted.
“This program has been a game changer for my students and my company. As a First Aid and CPR Training organization we hope to teach a student well enough that they feel confident and ready to respond in an emergency.
But in reality, very little of what they learned is retained without rigorous hands on practice. This is why I am so excited by the Get Ready™ First Aide Platform, it provides students with the answers they need in an emergency. Students feel its like having a second rescuer with them that knows exactly what to do with over 70 short precise videos quickly found by voice activation. We use the app during training, so students become familiar with it and know how to use it as a tool. Upon retraining students, it has been so nice to hear all the scenarios this app has assisted with.”
I am an adult rec-league hockey player and was participating in a one-day tournament yesterday. In the game before ours there was a major collision and 2 guys crashed heavily into the boards.
The one guy who got the worst of it had badly injured his shoulder and needed to go to the hospital.
Remembering I had the Get Ready Emergency App I quickly and easily navigated to find out how to properly apply a sling to stabilize his injury for the car ride. The video talked us through it perfectly. I heard back later from his wife that it was a broken collar bone. She was thankful for the good work with the sling.
I have never had any first aid training but there in the palm of my hand was all I needed to make a difference and help an injured person.
Thank you for creating this brilliant app!
