Call 911 if you used your Automated External Defibrillator (AED)
The City requires all youth baseball leagues to have an Automated External Defibrillator (AED) and a trained responder present at every field where youth baseball is played. This includes all City owned fields and it applies to all games and practices.
Youth baseball leagues are considered to be any league that has participants who are all 17 years old or younger, but includes grade school through high school athletic programs regardless of the age of the participants.
This requirement applies to:
- School leagues
- Little leagues
- Community based organization leagues
- Unaffiliated leagues
This requirement does not apply to softball.
The Parks Department offers AED training classes throughout the 5 boroughs. You can find a class and register online at the Parks Department website. All AEDs and training will be provided to the league free of cost.
Register for an AED training class.
If your league would like to set up training at a location of your choosing, send an email to youthbaseballAED@parks.nyc.gov.
