The El Cortez in downtown Reno was evacuated on Saturday afternoon after reports of a carbon monoxide leak.  Reno firefighters arrived and discovered high levels of carbon monoxide.  Firefighters went door to door to make sure all residents were out of the building and safe.  It's unknown how many people were evacuated from the building, but eight people were transported by REMSA to the hospital to be treated.

I saw a number of elderly and fragile people standing or leaning against the building in full sun for some time during the lengthy incident. Is there a service that looks after the well being of evacuees in episodes like these, perhaps the Red Cross? I was concerned some residents were heat or sun stroked or at least dehydrated which symptoms might not show until after the Fire Department is long gone.
