Airport gets defibrillators

Susan Wood

The Reno/Tahoe International Airport has installed three automatic external defibrillators, the Washoe County Airport Authority announced Wednesday.

The life-saving devices were donated to the airport by the Regional Emergency Medical Services Authority.

The airport authority estimated 15,000 people travel through the airport every day.

There’s a nationwide outcry for the devices that can turn back the clock on cardiac arrests in public buildings.
