St John Ambulance unveils free first aid app for cyclists
UK charity St John Ambulance has launched a free first aid app to ensure cyclists are equipped with the essential skills to help others in an emergency.
Wayne Badcock, East of England operational cycling officer, said: “Our unique, free app, is a new tool specifically aimed at equipping the increasing numbers of cyclists across the country with first aid skills and should be as essential as a puncture repair kit.
“We know many cyclists have accidents on the road each year, sometimes resulting in injuries where first aid could have made a difference. As the nation’s leading first aid charity, we want to ensure that the UK’s cycling community is equipped with first aid knowledge, so that more cyclists can help where circumstances might need them.”
