Being a hero doesn't mean you know how to fly, have super strength or even have extraordinary powers which makes the whole world look up to you. Modern day heroes are often the firefighters, nurses, overseas workers and the rest of the people bearing other professions. And how would you react if you become one of them?

It's a great advantage for an ordinary citizen to acquire skills such as a completed training for resuscitation. And it will be easier for you to help those people who are in need of your help if you receive notifications right on your device! Simply enable your phone's GPS, and alerts will be sent to you if there are emergencies nearby.

▲ Add nearby agencies for easy access. Customize tool setup through menu options.

▲ Look up for an agency, city or zip code.

▲ Enable your GPS and alerts to receive them automatically on your device along with the precise location.

With the help of this tool, it will be easier for you to provide the authorities the exact location especially for difficult situations such as crimes, fire breakout, or hostage taking.

This substance will help revive the victim's breathing. But if it won't work, better call 911 for back-up.
