Int. No. 1686

 

By Council Members Constantinides, Rosenthal and Gentile

 

A Local Law to amend the administrative code of the city of New York, in relation to an online tool for locating nearby automated external defibrillators

 

Be it enacted by the Council as follows:

 

                     Section 1. Section 17-188 of the administrative code of the city of New York, as added by local law number 20 for the year 2005, is amended to add a new subdivision l to read as follows:

l. The department shall make available on its website a tool that provides a user with the location of the three public places that are nearest to such user that are required to have an automated external defibrillator pursuant to this section. Such tool shall provide users with directions or a map to each such public place and shall include a conspicuous notice informing users that, although such public places are required to have an automated external defibrillator by law, this does not guarantee that each such place has a defibrillator. The city is not liable for any deficiencies or inaccuracies in such tool.

                     § 2. This local law takes effect 90 days after it becomes law, except that the commissioner of health may take such measures as are necessary for implementation of this law, including the promulgation of rules, before such effective date.
