Gong marks launch “HartslagNu” app
Foundation Heartbeat for the Netherlands opens trading to mark the launch of the new Smartphone-App “HartslagNu” (HeartbeatNow), available from March 2015.
The rescue alert system for early resuscitation, HartslagNu, exists for two years now. More than 65,000 volunteer lay rescuers are registered and can be alerted in case of a resuscitation in their direct neighbourhood. These volunteers are able to be at site earlier than the ambulance and therefore can make the difference. By introducing the app, the effectiveness of the resuscitation alert system will be improved. Chairman of the Foundation Heartbeat for the Netherlands, Wim van der Worp, sounds the gong.
