Ridgefield woman advocates for AEDs required in gyms

Members of the Ridgefield state legislative delegation are touting a bill that's been approved by the Senate and awaits action in the House.  The measure would, among other things, require gyms and health clubs to have AEDs on site.  It was approved on a vote of 33 to 2.  Senator Will Haskell says this stemmed from a constituent request.  Suzanne Brennan reached out about the death of her husband due to a cardiac incident while at the gym.  Although a defibrillator would likely have saved his life, there was no such device at the gym.  Haskell says AEDs are already required in schools and at golf courses.  The measure was co-sponsored by Newtown Representative Mitch Bolinsky.
