Rapid Rescue is an app developed for the Singapore Red Cross by JWT. It connects first aiders in the immediate vicinty with someone in need of medical attention. They launched it on National Red Cross Day to ride the topical wave at the end of May 2012. We missed it first time around but Springwise have just picked up on it. Using real-time data from the phone to connect those in need with people who have the expertise may well save lives but it will depend on how many first aiders sign up to it. If all 12,00o trained first aiders in Singapore do then it will be a powerful tool.
