DARE to save a life with new app

The DARE team made their presence felt on 26 May 2018 at the Toa Payoh Hub when they set up a roadshow to educate members of the public on what they can do in a cardiac arrest situation.

The carnival was graced by the Guest of Honour Mr Amrin Amin, Senior Parliamentary Secretary for Ministry of Home Affairs and Ministry of Health. It saw the launch of the DARE app, an educational tool to equip users with knowledge on CPR+AED. The public also had the opportunity to try first hand on delivering chest compressions on a manikin.
