How this cause brings people in the community together
We will be working with local businesses and raising awareness of the GoodSAM app. The app can alert nearby persons who hold a first aid qualification or more, and can assist in an emergency. This will help support the community in an emergency and increase the likelihood of quick and effective CPR, which will saves lives in our area.
