Automated External Defibrillators (AEDs)
In recent years, Airport Foundation granted $50,000 to fund an additional 20-25 Automated External Defibrillators at MSP Airport. Previously, over $60,000 was donated to fund AED devices for MSP and six reliever airports.
The Airport Fire Department used the grant to purchase additional AEDs,(100 total now at the MSP campus) and create appropriate signage. These life-saving devices can correctly defibrillate pediatric patients, coach users on CPR, and use less electricity (resulting in a gentler shock to the heart).
Airport Beautification Projects
Airport Foundation funds numerous projects to enhance and beautify both terminals, inside and out.
- Decorative floor mosaics
- Hanging flower baskets
- MSP welcome signage
- Replica of the Spirit of St. Louis from the 1957 movie
Children’s Play Areas
Airport Foundation funded the construction of two custom children’s play areas at MSP Airport:
- Terminal 1 in Concourse C (near Gate C12)
- Terminal 2 (near Gate H6)
Children and adults are able to take advantage of a large enclosed space where children can play and “get the wiggles out”.
Our custom play areas were designed and built by Blue Rhino Studios, located in Eagan, Minnesota.
