Cittaslow price for Hartveilig Valthermond


Hartveilig Valthermond was declared the winner of the second Cittaslow incentive prize. This prize is awarded to a resident, entrepreneur or organisation that has propagated the Cittaslow idea in a special way. Valthermond is busy becoming the 'safest place to be' in the Netherlands.

In December an eighth AED was placed. This means that in the elongated village an AED is always within six minutes at hand when someone is hit by a cardiac arrest. In addition, the people of Hartveilig Valthermond are busy training civil relief workers. At the moment there are about 120 of them in the village.

To become the most cardiac safe place in the Netherlands, five percent of the population must be a civil relief worker.
