@CraigTaylor74 great post and one that as you know is very near and dear to my heart. You touched on something there in your comment about the manufacturers shoul dbe installing apps like this by default and it has stirred up a long labour of thought for me about how much, as a nation, we can do to educate and provide every one with basic life saving skills. It should be law to have this app and know how to use it, it should also be law to carry a first aid kit in your car AND have a knowledge of how to use it as part of your driving lesson. It amazes me how they can put questions into the driving test about water and oil levels and how to change a tyre, which yes they are all important as a motorist but as a "lazy natin" we call on the AA or the RAC to do this type of thing for us (change a wheel at the roadside) but in a time of need (Road Traffic Collision) Basic Life Saving Skills are a fundamental need at times that can save lives. Just as important is the need to put BLS on the national curriculum in schools from the age of 7 yesr through to leaving.
I genuinely long for the day where awareness training surrounding First Aid is lifted to the same levels of importance by that of other countries, where they have better success rates of survival with Sudden Cardiac Arrests, Heart Attacks, Strokes etc.
We can but live in hope.
