On Monday P1 pm. 13:35 broadcast program with slogan “When citizens are called out”. Since 2012 Holm has had its own defibrillator that villagers themselves raised to the originator Olle Frisk. The same year launched Rescue Medelpad a project and when educated about twenty volunteers villagers in Holm who were willing to stand in an accident. Since the end of January this year, the system is commissioned and the volunteers can now be alerted by SOS at an event.
