About

If you were on a dark wooded road in the middle of the night and had a flat tire, would you know how to fix it? What about if you didn't have any cell service? No way to call out to anyone? What if there was an accident and you didn't know what to do? Natural disaster? Power outages can last for days or longer and as long as you can keep a charge on your phone, this app can save your life or the life of a loved one. 

In a natural disaster or man-made disaster, the ability to get online and get content has the potential to be hampered or completely shut off. Sometimes you don't have the signal to call and get help.

This app is a completely off-line based application that is designed to save lives. Short video tutorials on how to change your tire, step by step walkthroughs for CPR, applying a tourniquet, and other life saving techniques. We also plan to roll out a completely off-line wilderness survival section (venomous animals, safe plants to eat, water treatment, fire, Etc). Right now, we would like to get this out and running immediately to help as many people as we can with basic first aid techniques.

My wife and I are both first responders. She was an EMT and I graduated the Police academy in 2015 when she injured her back irreparably. With 4 beautiful kids at home and no way for her to move, I stepped back and had to work from home.That injury forced us from the jobs we loved but we still have found an opportunity to help not just our community, but communities all over the country. My plan is to hire only first responders or military veterans to create our content and develop the app. I have secured a veteran app designer and I have local police, firefighters and EMS that have pledged to help us with quality content. The first responder community is vast and tight-knit. Now we have an opportunity to help people we can't get to. Consider helping us to get this life saving information put on as many phones and devices as possible.

Risks and challenges

Here is a breakdown of our funding liabilities-
App development is going to cost $10,000.
The balance will be used for video production costs for the walkthrough videos. Our videos have to be small enough to be effective and not take up a bunch of memory. Well produced but lower definition videos that are easy to follow and get to in the app
So far the lineup is:
How to change a tire
Where to add water if your car is overheating
CPR
Assessing a trauma
Dressing a wound
Cspine and bone stabilization
Basic emergency management
