In Arnhem, a lot of work has been done in recent years to make the intersection of Hommelseweg with Dalweg and Thomas a Kempislaan safer. Due to the many (near) accidents, this intersection has long been on the list of dangerous traffic points in Arnhem. The municipality therefore built a roundabout in 2021. The BewonersNetwerk Klarenbeek (BNK) also thought about ways to make the intersection even safer.
One of their wishes: an AED at the Tango gas station. And it worked! On Thursday, March 2, 2023, Arnhem alderman Nermina Kundić unveiled the new AED.
From wish to real AED At the end of September 2022, the BNK spoke to local residents about the intersection during a residents' evening. A neighborhood program followed from all the suggested ideas and plans, including the wish for an AED. An idea that deserves top priority according to the BNK! And so she did everything she could to achieve this before the summer of 2023.
The BNK visited the desired location, gas station Tango, and was enthusiastically received. Not only did Tango promise that the AED could be placed on site, the gas station also provides the necessary electricity and security for the AED free of charge.
“The supplier of the equipment, AED-Partner, also generously cooperated by not only supplying the equipment at a special price, but also realizing the installation very quickly and also giving a course to six people from the neighborhood.”
It is great to hear that our cooperation has been experienced positively and that we are working with various parties to ensure that the old, unsafe intersection is gradually transformed into a safer place.
