Emergency Medical Response Quick Reference Guide App - National Safety Council

Emergency Medical Response Quick Reference Guide App

The NSC Quick Reference Guide is a vital reference tool used extensively throughout the Emergency Medical Response course, but it is also available to anyone who would like first aid guidance at their fingertips. It provides a list of abbreviations and memory aids, as well as an illustrated summary of treatment steps for various illnesses and injuries.

NSC is excited to offer students – and the general public – this portable, digital version of the guide. It contains the same need-to-know content as the traditional guide, but in a convenient, always-with-you electronic format. It's free and can help you save a life.

National CPR and AED Awareness Week is a great time to spread the word and share these statistics:

  • 25% of all emergency room visits can be avoided with basic first aid and CPR certification
  • Sudden cardiac arrest represents 13% of all workplace deaths
  • Nearly 5 million workers were injured on the job in 2012, costing companies $198.2 billion
  • 75% of all out-of-hospital heart attacks happen at home

The app is now available from the App Store and Google Play. Search "National Safety Council" to find and install the app.
