Do you know what to do
when bitten by a snake?

SnakeBite911 is a free and easy-to-use iOS app that serves as an essential complement to your outdoors first aid kit. The app is an educational resource for North American Pit Vipers – how to avoid them, and what to do (and NOT do) should a snake strike happen!

When a snake bites, Time is Tissue. The bite victim needs careful and immediate medical attention. A call to 911 should always be the first course of action, and after that call is made, SnakeBite911 will help you administer calm, cool and appropriate support.
