All SPAR supermarkets in Denmark are currently being fitted with life saving AED’s, available to its community 24 / 7 / 365. The AED’s are prominently placed in our outdoor heated cabinets and make sure the local community has life saving equipment just around the corner. The local SPAR staff is trained in CPR and use of these devices to ensure the safety of the customer. A great initiative, beneficial to all Danish people. Congratulations to all!

A small country with a big heart!
The Dutch Heart Association (Hartstichting) announced today it reached its goal of 170.000 registered lay responders. 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. Rotaid is very proud to be part of this great project and achievement. Together with the Dutch Heart Association we remain committed to further enlarge the amount of lay responders and accessible defibrillators in the Netherlands.
