¿Hablas español?

Did we know that we have added a Spanish language feature to the apps that include simple lifesaving information that will help keep families safe?

Spanish Apps

Included in the new language change are the First Aid, Hurricane, Earthquake, Tornado, Wildfire, and Flood apps. Our First Aid app gives you instant access to expert advice for everyday emergencies, while the five disaster preparedness apps give you local and real-time information for severe weather or disaster threats.

Another awesome feature – all six of them offer pre-loaded content ensuring that Red Cross guidance is available anytime, anywhere – even if internet connection is unavailable. It certainly comes in handy when tornado warnings go off in the middle of the night!
