These 170.000 represent 1% of the Dutch population and make the Netherlands the first country in the world with such a large national network of responders. Next to the repsonders, the association also encouraged AED owners in making their device accessible 24 hours a day, resulting in over 1400 new Public Access Defibrillators.
