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 Sewanhaka Indians varsity football team hosted Elmont Spartans on Saturday, Oct. 18 in its final home game of the regular season.
It certainly did not go as the Indians had hoped, falling 18-8, in a mistake filled game. Head coach George Kasimatis said the Indians had their chances, but kept digging themselves into a hole with mental mistakes on both sides of the ball.
Playing from behind, senior running back Brenton Mighty was able to break free for a long touchdown run, to put the Indians on the board.
