aedEmergency first responder medical response is available from the Airport Aircraft Rescue and Fire Fighting Unit during airport operating hours.  Additional medical assistance is available by calling 911.

Automated External Defibrillators (AED)

Ten Automated External Defibrillators (AED) are installed at LNY in the event of a medical emergency.  Defibrillators are located about 90 seconds apart in walking distance through the airport’s public areas.

The defibrillators are mounted in security boxes that alert Airport Crash/Fire/Rescue staff when the equipment is removed. Airport security is also alerted to respond to the scene and to call 911 for additional medical help.

Airport volunteers have been trained how to respond to a cardiac emergency, perform CPR, and how to use the AEDs.

For more information about the defibrillator program, contact Pamela Foster, R.N., President and CEO of the AED Institute of America, Inc. at 808-640-4151.
