Welcome to the Get Ready Emergency App
This app was developed by healthcare professionals to provide the public with immediate access to over 70 short “How To” videos. The Get Ready Emergency App is always with you!
Our easy-to-use app is divided into six medical emergency types:
» ABC’s (choking, anaphylaxis, drowning, CPR/AED)
» Trauma (broken bones, burns, head, neck and back injuries)
» Medical (asthma, heart and stroke, seizures)
» Environmental (bites, stings, heat stroke, frostbite, hypothermia)
» Overdose (drug and alcohol overdose, including opiates OD and Narcan administration)
» Mass Casualty (triage and treatment guideline)
These safety features provide instant access to further assistance without leaving the app
» Call 911 – right from the App
» Maps – to learn your location and address
» Take a pic/video – save it to your Gallery

This feature provides quick information on what to do during emergency and disaster situations listed below:
» Person with a Weapon (Active Shooter)

» Opioid Overdose
» Fire Evacuation
Ease of Use
Each section is no more than 3 clicks away from the needed information. Text or Voice activates searches to immediately navigate to treatment topics.
All the content including the videos are installed in the initial installation, so that the content and videos are accessible when Data or Wi-Fi are not available. The app is less than 100mb in size.
Everyone should have this app, but especially:
» First Aid / CPR course participants
» High school and post-secondary students
» Industry first aid responders
» Fire Wardens
» School medical response teams
» Early childhood workers

While treatment protocols may vary from place to place, we have used the standards established by Health Canada, Ontario Ministry of Health, Emergency Health Services Branch - Pre-hospital Care guidelines, Ontario Ministry of Labour, International Liaison Consortium On Resuscitation (ILCOR), Heart & Stroke Foundation (HSF), American Heart Association (AHA), NFPA, and OSHA.
This app supports the first aider in a medical or emergency situation and is not intended as a substitute for First Aid and CPR training. Get Ready Inc. encourages everyone to participate in First Aid and CPR training. In the event a person or App customer is unsure of what to do or needs help, call 9-1-1 or Emergency Medical Services as soon as possible.
