    That’s great. This is the best way of giving tutorial for any emergency situation, as most of the people always keep their phones with them, so this feature can help them anywhere in any condition and works as a first aid kit at that moment.

    What a great tool! Every coach needs to know the basics of first aid, but sometimes in a panic you might completely blank. A coach is responsible for the safety and well being of their players, so this is definitely worth the download!
