PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) - How to handle a passenger with symptoms of Ebola is part of the training for Portland International Airport Fire and Rescue crews.

Although the chance of a passenger arriving in Portland is low, fire crews would use an isolation bag to prevent exposing others.

Lt. Michael Dayton tells KATU (https://bit.ly/1ufRVaj ) the bag encapsulates the patient who would be put on a wheeled stretcher. The patient would be sealed up in the bag and given oxygen to breathe.
