Letter: AEDs Needed At Parks

Tully Park has become very popular with Oasis Day Camps, Red Bull Soccer Camps, lacrosse camps and games, baseball camps and softball games and many residents using the track and tennis courts. With this increase of park use I would encourage the Town of North Hempstead to install  two AEDs in the park. 

 

One at the track and one by the baseball fields. 

 

Parents leave their precious children in the hands of Oasis Day Camp employees over the summer and head off to work knowing their children are in safe hands because the employees are CPR/AED trained. But if an unfortunate event did occur on the turf field it would take too long for an Oasis employee to retrieve the only AED onsite located in the pool area and bring it to the turf field .

 

Every six minutes, someone in the U.S. suffers Sudden Cardiac Arrest and every minute without an AED reduces a victims chances of survival by 10 percent.

 

Please don’t let our lives and the lives of our children be at risk this summer put two AEDs in Tully Park.

 

And if the town has any legal concerns with the placement of AEDs in the park I can arrange a meeting or phone call with Attorney Steve Tannenbaum, the chairman of the Board of Directors of the Sudden Cardiac Arrest Association. His office is located in New Hyde Park.

The Sons of Italy, Cellini Lodge No. 2206 Italian Festival in New Hyde Park garnered a solid turnout during its five-day run at Michael J. Tully Park last week. According to Lodge First Vice President Alfonso Squillante, the annual festival had more 1,500 people each day, with 3,200 people on Saturday night for the fireworks display.

 

“We’ve had a great turnout, the community has responded very positively,” said Squillante. “Last year we had 12,000 people over the course of five days and this year we are looking at record-breaking numbers.”

Sewanhaka High School alum Vince Scuderi took over the Metropolitan Room in Manhattan this past Sunday with his group, the Out of the Box Big Band. 

 

“The concert went well, with just the right amount of fulfilled expectations and controlled and chaotic surprise to keep the audience and the musicians on the edge of their seats and always wanting more,” said Scuderi.

 

The Out of the Box Big Band is made up of 17 pieces, which includes five saxophones, four trumpets, four trombones, a piano, guitar and string bass. Sometimes, they also had a vocalist to the mix.
