Alexa Skills: UK First Aid

The British Red Cross has released a new skill for Alexa that can provide first aid when its critically needed. Interesting enough, the skill is only available in the UK, which is a first. Usually Alexa skills are available in the U.S. and not the UK.

Available today for UK Alexa users, the First aid by British Red Cross skill attempts to help solve some of the more common emergency issues until qualified emergency personnel can be called. Some of the situations the skill can help with are…

Someone who is having a seizure.
Someone who has a burn.
Someone who has a broken bone.
Someone who is having an asthma attack.
Someone who is bleeding heavily.

Where to get it: You can locate the First aid by British Red Cross skill in the Amazon Alexa app, enable it using your voice, or use the following web link: First aid by British Red Cross

Alexa is available for Amazon devices Echo, Dot, Tap, Fire tablets, and Fire TV, but also on iOS, Android, and the web with
