BILL NUMBER:S3302

TITLE OF BILL: An act to amend the public health law, in relation to
authorizing public access defibrillation providers to possess and
carry such automated external defibrillators in personal motor
vehicles

PURPOSE: This bill would allow public access defibrillation to be
available to those who are trained, and will make available such
equipment to be carried in their personal motor vehicles.

SUMMARY OF PROVISIONS:

Section 1. Subdivision 3 of section 3000-b of the Public health law is
amended by adding a new paragraph (g).

JUSTIFICATION: Heart attacks are one of the nation's leading causes
of death. Approximately 250,000 people die from sudden cardiac arrest
every year. Automated external defibrillators greatly increase a heart
attack victim's chance of survival. The American Heart Association
estimates that as many as 100,000 deaths could be prevented each year
through the widespread deployment of defibrillators.

Seconds are critical when an individual suffers a heart attack. It is
essential that the State encourage availability to trained
individuals, to prevent causalities. For that reason, automated
external defibrillators need to be readily available to anyone who is
licensed, and this must include availability in their personal motor
vehicles.

LEGISLATIVE HISTORY: S.6797 of 2004 S.518 of 2005/2006 S.586 of
2007/2008 S.3395 of 2009/2010 S.4665 of 2011/2012

FISCAL IMPLICATIONS: None.

EFFECTIVE DATE: This act shall take effect immediately.
