Like Liam Neeson, we all have special skills. Some know how to hold on to skis, others can write perfectly in mirror and finally, some have escaped justice for years.

But all of that pales in comparison to life-saving first aid skills. It’s even better than being a member of the Avengers. Except that here, as a good geek, you spend more time at home than outside watching for accidents to save people. And the life of a firefighter, apart from fishing on July 14, doesn’t tempt you that much.

So what can you do?

Well, there is an app for Android and iOS called Sauv Life that lets you be alerted if someone near you needs vital help. Thus, once registered, the SAMU can contact you at any time in the event of cardiac arrest or haemorrhage.

So of course if you have your first aid training it’s good, but if you don’t have the skills, you can also register and you will be guided over the phone by a doctor to practice first aid gestures.

This is super important, because there are more than 40,000 cardiac arrests in France per year, and without cardiac massage, victims only have a 4% chance of surviving. Only, here it is, the help taking an average of 13 minutes to arrive on the spot, and the chances of survival decreasing by 10% each minute, in other words that without a volunteer citizen, it is badly blocked. And thanks to this application, this citizen can be you!

The application can also be used as a quick way to notify the SAMU or other helping citizens while being geolocated.

In short, whether or not you are trained in first aid gestures, do not hesitate to install Save Life, because you will definitely make the difference.
