citizenAID’s ability to build resilient communities through empowering local business employees was reported by the U.S. Chamber of Commerce .
Businesses play an important role in building resilient communities, and ensuring their employees and organizations are prepared for natural or manmade disasters.
We do this by offering online training courses, Public Treatment Kits, and a free mobile app to equip anyone with the knowledge they need in case they find themselves in an unfortunate situation, whether it be a natural or manmade disaster. While most people are anxious and afraid in moments of emergency, citizenAID’s trainings and app are designed to give everyone peace of mind. When you’re prepared, you’re less likely to be scared and more likely to make rational, life-saving decisions. The training courses and mobile app were inspired by the Combat Lifesaver Course used to train non-medic soldiers to sustain lives on the battlefield while waiting for medics to arrive, and were created by experts with decades of experience in emergency response.
With unexpected tragedies shaking up communities seemingly every day, we’re motivated to make sure every community has the tools they need to prepare if something happens to them, and we’re proud of the partnerships we’ve created with organizations that aspire to do the same.
