Tyler installing defibrillators at key locations

The city of Tyler was the recipient of a life-saving gift from East Texas Medical Center Tuesday.

ETMC has donated six defibrillators to the city, each valued at nearly $18,000. They will be placed in the Rose Garden Center, Harvey Hall, Glass Recreation Center, Lindsey Park, the Tyler Public Library, and the Faulkner Tennis Center.

"Defibrillators have shown to greatly increase the likelihood of survival during a heart attack," said Tyler Mayor Barbara Bass.  "This donation by ETMC demonstrates their commitment to saving lives in our community."
