[prMac.com] Madrid, Spain - The multi-award-winning Spanish publisher DADA Company, a leader in the creation of children's apps, has developed, in collaboration with the Red Cross humanitarian movement, an educational app aimed at sensitizing children aged between 6 and 8 on behavioural guidelines towards risk and danger. The app, available for free on iOS and Android, is titled RED CROSS - Prevention of accidents and first aid for children.
DADA Company and Red Cross both seek to satisfy educational needs of high quality content in child safety, to be applied in both personal and institutional levels. This initiative, born from the Red Cross, came to life due to the short supply of this type of content which can be used both at home and in the classroom by parents, teachers and students themselves.
The main objectives of this free app are getting children to identify danger through simulations inspired by everyday situations: the house, the kitchen, in the car, at the beach or at school, among others. The user is free to interact with the different elements of the scene, showing the consequences of certain behaviors and actions to be taken in case of an accident. This way the child will recognize the risks that adult environments pose and enable them to deal with it properly.
For example, children will learn to be careful and prevent falling down, avoiding cuts or burns in the kitchen, to be careful in a hot day at the park and recognize toxic products that can be found around the house.
An app free of charge, RED CROSS has been translated to 22 languages and illustrated by Sebasti Serra. It was created with the intention of preventing misfortunes and allowing families to teach prevention guidelines to children, how to call the emergency services and learn basic first aid actions for minor injuries in a innovative and fun way.
