We are highlighting to fans the locations of defibrillators within the Stadium Bowl area. A defibrillator is a device that gives a high energy electric shock to the heart of someone who is in cardiac arrest. This high energy shock is called defibrillation, and it's an essential part in trying to save the life of someone who’s in cardiac arrest.

These are clearly only for use in an emergency, but can prove vital for fans who suffer a cardiac arrest.
