The Lynnhaven South AED Program

Friends and Neighbors:

  • Are you prepared and know what to do in the event of a cardiac emergency in your home?
     
  • Do you believe that having quick access to an AED (Automatic External Defibrillator) would benefit you and/or a loved one in the event of a cardiac emergency?
     
  • Do you know that the response time for a cardiac emergency is "the sooner the better"?...every minute of delay decreases the chance of survival by 10%?
     
  • Are you aware that many communities set up "RESPONDER TEAMS" of residents within neighborhoods to reduce the time of response…Emergency Medical Technitions (EMTs) are often out on calls and cannot respond to an emergency as quickly as needed?
     

Hopefully EVERY Lynnhaven resident will be interested in participating in the Lynnhaven AED Program eventually.

 

Lynnhaven South AED Program Update

Dear Neighbors,

The Lynnhaven South AED Program is in place and active! The new program encompasses all Livingston Loop and Evelynton Loop areas. Thanks to so many of you who have contributed! We were able to purchase 10 AEDs. Our goal was to place the AEDS strategically throughout the area so each house is within 850 feet of an AED. However, we are still collecting funds to meet the budget for the next four years.

We have 58 Responders who will help when there is a sudden cardiac arrest (SCA) anywhere within our community. Our goal is to respond within 60-90 seconds to begin CPR and use an AED, if indicated. The average time for EMS arrival from our Parr Street station is seven minutes. Two minutes after a SCA, the chance of survival drops 10% without CPR. We have several Responder snowbirds and are looking for substitutes for them during their absence. If you are willing to help for six months during the summer months, please let us know.

To increase chances of survival, we have decided to include our entire area even though there were a few places where people decided not to contribute. Because the system is based on streets and house numbers, we don’t want to leave any area out. We want to provide as much protection to everyone whether they are walking, riding a bike, working in their yard, or in their home.

We are hoping to have many more residents contribute. Make checks to Lynnhaven South AED Program. Our budget is based on everyone contributing $105 for four years, but many residents have contributed $125 or more to help people who are unable to give the full amount.

If you have any questions or are willing to be a Responder during the summer, please email Marcia Lucas (click on link for email address) or call 352-268-2849 or 678-575-7512.

Checks may be mailed to or dropped off at one of the following homes:

Thank You from Nancy King

Good Morning Everyone. I want to wish you ALL a wonderful Holiday season and a New Year filled with laughter, love, and good health.

Dear Friends and Neighbors,

I wanted to say Thank You to all those in the AED South group who responded to my 911 call on Monday evening, December 2. It was wonderful to see so many who came.

I also want to thank all those who contributed to the Lynnhaven AED South program in order to make the program become a reality. Hal did pass away, very peacefully, that same evening. He was cremated and I will be taking him back to Alton, Illinois, for a memorial service there in the Spring.

Again, thank you.
~ Nancy
