Wimberly & Garcia Bill to Require Defibrillators at Youth Athletic Events in N.J. Advanced by Assembly Panel

"Not to have AEDs on site in this day and age is unacceptable."

TRENTON, NJ--Legislation Assembly Democrats Benjie Wimberly and Carmelo Garcia sponsored to save lives by requiring local recreation departments, youth serving organizations and camps to have automated external defibrillators for youth athletic events was released Thursday by an Assembly panel.

"We know defibrillators save lives," said Wimberly (D-Passaic/Bergen). "With these devices readily available, we need to ensure they're there when we need them. It's tragic to think that a life could have been saved had a defibrillator simply been present. Let's ensure that never happens."

"This is a common sense bill, but also the moral thing to do," said Garcia (D-Hudson). "Defibrillators save lives. It's that simple, and to not have them on-site when needed in this day and age is unacceptable."
