The Lynnhaven AED Program

Update on the Program

We’re working on starting the AED (Automated External Defibrillator) in the areas listed below:

  • Inside Livingston Loop
  • Inside Evelynton Loop, including the Churchill homes backing up to the area
  • Ludwell Lane
  • Sag Harbor Way
  • Bellerose Trail
  • Eaton Terrace

We need your help! There are 208 AED programs in The Villages. When there is a cardiac emergency having an AED in our neighborhood with trained Responders who can perform CPR and administer the AED may mean the difference between life and death. CPR gives us time. The AED gives us life. Without the AED, our heart cannot resume a normal rhythm.

Every minute without CPR decreases our chance of survival by 10%. The average time for an EMS to arrive is seven minutes. The average time for areas having AEDs in the area is one and a half minutes.

We need your help to start the program. Your contribution of $105, $125, or $150 will help cover our program for four years. We need 14 AEDs, aluminum boxes for storage, installation, new batteries that last four years, and Ready Alerts for the Responders those volunteers certified in CPR & AED usage who are committed to helping you in a cardiac emergency. We have 43 people ready for training.

Many of our neighbors are out of town. If you know their summer addresses or emails, please let us know. We want to start installing the units in June.

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.
