iPhone Apps For First Aiders

Having your phone in your pocket can give you a stack of handy resources just waiting for the day when they’re needed. I keep all of my emergency apps in a folder on the home screen of my phone, and these are some of the apps that I find most useful.


This is an inbuilt app for the iPhone, so there is no need to install it. The best feature of the app is probably the Medical ID feature. This allows you to store personal and medical information that may be needed in an emergency and have that information available even when your phone is locked. To make this operational, just add your details in the Medical ID section of the app (check the bottom right hand corner) and then check the “Show when locked” option to make it available when your phone is locked.

Emergency +

https://itunes.apple.com/au/app/emergency/id691814685?mt=8 This simple app makes it easy to make the right call in an emergency. It can help you call Triple Zero, but it also has a bunch of other useful numbers including Poisons Information all the way through to the National Security Hotline. It also gives you the nearest street address and latitude/longitude to make informing emergency services easier.

Allens Training

https://itunes.apple.com/au/app/allens-first-aid-training-course-attendees-app/id1142911388?mt=8 A First Aid app that keeps simple, up to date information at your fingertips. A must have app unless you’ve got a perfect memory for first aid skills.

Health Direct

https://itunes.apple.com/au/app/healthdirect-check-symptoms/id1021494621?ls=1&mt=8 Is that a lump, a bump or a tumor??? This app helps you ask the right questions when you see your doctor, or go to the pharmacist. Its good and getting better (there’s also the free phone service 1800022222)
