Hebron Harvest Fair Incorporates Outdoor Access to Defibrillation Strategy

Hebron, Connecticut’s annual agricultural fair, the Hebron Harvest Fair, is in its 52nd run this weekend and expects to see over 124,000 attendees. This year’s emergency action plan for fairgoers includes emergency equipment placed in secure AED enclosureson the grounds.

Emergency equipment provided by AED TEAM is housed in big yellow locked boxes whigh are accessible using a keycode by emergency responders or obtained by fairgoers who call 911.

The Hebron Fire Department staffs two first aid stations through the fair weekend and has roving patrols through the fairgrounds.  Emergency equipment caches make equipment - such as AEDs and bleeding control kits - available to multiple rescue teams without the need for them to carry equipment around on patrol.

Fair attendees who spot a cardiac arrest can also retrieve equipment by calling 911.  The dispatcher will start emergency responders to the location and provide the caller with the location and access code for the nearest AED.
