Through a three-year partnership, Monsanto will support the development of the American Red Cross First Aid app to ensure rural and urban communities can access life-saving information and safety resources.

The popular app, which can be used on smartphones and tablets, has recently included a new content section, which promotes safety and information in common agriculture-related injuries and incidents. The topics included are: child safety, tractor, trailer and ATV safety, and emergency preparedness.

The app can be downloaded by texting "GETFIRST" to 90999, by visiting redcross.org/apps or by searching "American Red Cross" in the app store on smartphones and tablets. No action is necessary for those who have downloaded the app previously. The new content will automatically be accessible.
