The App Podcast Review

April 24, 2009

It’s very smart in the way that it walks you through what you should be dealing with in what particular order.


This review,  done by Jerad Hill from The App Podcast,  just showed up on our radar.

This is a good app to have on hand if you’re an active person and you are around other people where there is the possibility of potentially getting hurt.

Hill brought up a good point in the review, “it would be nice if there were pictures that went along with it.”  We hope to add photos and maybe even video when we put out a new version.

Drop us a note in the comment section, or if you’re on Twitter, send us an reply to @ThinkSafe of any comments, suggestions or if you have reviewed one of our products!

It’s time for some more Friday fun!

For this Friday, we will be taking a quick quiz from Healthline.

Test your knowledge about first aid and emergencies!

So, how did you do?

Wouldn’t it be nice to have someone help you answer those questions?  We think so!  That’s why at Think Safe we create products that assist you in emergency situations.  If you have an iPhone or an iPod Touch,  check out the Resqr app!  If you work for a business,  think about an EID.

And as always, consider being trained in First Aid and CPR!

Wishing you a long and healthy life!


Think Safe and the Emergency Response and First Aid Field

April 15, 2009

Paula , The President/CEO of Think Safe,  wanted to share with the world just what Think Safe is, does and promises to do.  Read her letter below and get to know us more!

To give you some background on the first aid/CPR industry – major training organization approved CPR protocols are set by American Heart Association research/science and details of this are on our website.  CPR & First Aid changes do occur usually every 2-3 years.  We have found no other company/competitor that provides that level of support or adherence to date.  We like to say we are “Changing the Face of First Aid”We provide technology solutions to the first aid realm that even the major first aid training organizations in the world are not capable of doing. What changes they make due to national first aid science discoveries in their instruction manuals and DVDs (which generally takes a year to switch out after the change) – we make applicable in the software/real-time application world immediately! The whole reason of course is our passion to improve outcomes and to save lives…something many of our clients can testify to!

Basically, in this long winded excerpt – what I am trying to say is that we deliver within our application the right guidelines, the right support and a unique way (patents in office action/pending) of accessing the information real-time or for trainingThis is imperative for emergency situations. While the wireless and technology driven world do provide opportunity for instant access to information it is imperative in certain situations to have the best and most recent information accessible!

Thanks for the ear and please provide me any input.  As we grow our company; we are looking to hear back from our readers/reviewers and grow the right way.

Thank you again for your time.  Make it a great day!


Think Safe President, Paula Wickham

It’s Friday so let’s have some fun!

Below is a word search of ANSI (American National Standards Institute) requirements for a first aid kit.  Can you find them all?

What if a 911 call doesn’t work?

April 8, 2009

In May of 2008, a 911 call went to an operator in a different city.  The caller’s husband passed away as the woman had to hang up and dial 911 again in hopes of connecting to the correct 911 operator.

Are you prepared for all types of emergencies?

KCRG covered this story here.  The husband was having respitory issues and expired before he could get proper help.   Doctors speculated that the extra time spent trying to reach the correct 911 operator did not compound the situation and cause his death.

But what if it was a different situation?

We cannot always rely on our cellphones working,  being connected to the correct 911 operator or having emergency services arrive on time.  Be prepared!

Have a fully stocked first aid kit that is American National Standards Institute (ANSI)  compliant. All of Think Safe’s first aid and responder kits are up to code with ANSI standards and we have the First Aid Cube which goes far beyond ANSI compliance to make sure you’re prepared.

Think about being CPR and first aid certified. Although we hope you won’t need to use your training, there will be no doubt a time in your life that you’ll need to assist someone.  Whether it is a friend who is having a severe asthma attack or a broken wrist happens while outside on a sunny day,  knowing first aid and CPR is vital.

Once you are certified, you might think about investing an in EID (Electronic Instruction Device) to guide you through the steps you were trained to take.

Or if bulky technology is not your thing, think about an emergency response app for your iPhone/iPod Touch!

Remember,  every second counts!

Wishing you a long and healthy life!
