We’re highlighting defibrillator locations in the Stadium Bowl area for fans. A defibrillator is a device that gives a high-energy electric shock to the heart of a person in cardiac arrest. This high-energy shock is called defibrillation, and it’s an essential part of trying to save the life of someone in cardiac arrest.
These are clearly only used in emergencies, but can prove to be vital for fans experiencing cardiac arrest.
