I wanted to make sure you were aware of a new, life-saving program called citizenAID North America (citizenAID), which is launching in the U.S. next week.
CitizenAID’s mission is simple: to save lives in times of crisis. In order to do so, citizenAID provides the public with both the tools and knowledge to save lives before first responders and medical professionals arrive on the scene.
In order to disseminate life-saving knowledge, citizenAID developed a free mobile application, which is now available on the App Store and Google Play. In addition to the app, citizenAID has created short, online courses taught by leading experts in safety and emergency medicine and comprehensive public treatment kits, which contain emergency response equipment – like tourniquets and medical supplies.

citizenAID North America Brings Disaster Response System to the US from the UK
WASHINGTON – Today citizenAID North America (citizenAID) officially launched in the U.S., uniting comprehensive public treatment kits and online training and curriculum – all specific to disaster preparedness – in one place for the first time.
citizenAID is a system of immediate actions the public can take to save lives – either their own or those around them – should they be caught in any act of violence or act of nature where multiple people are injured. citizenAID was designed to educate, empower, and equip the average citizen to save lives during the time between point of wounding and professional medical care arriving.
In order to distribute this knowledge broadly, citizenAID has developed a free mobile application available now on the App Store and Google Play. In addition to the app, citizenAID also provides:
- Public Treatment Kits: citizenAID has created kits and wall stations in various sizes for schools, community spaces, offices, and public transportation hubs.
- Online Training & Curriculum: citizenAID offers online training that leverages the knowledge of our Subject Matter Experts (SMEs), who have spent decades working in emergency response. This curriculum will be available for download on our website in early February 2018.
