Epinephrine Auto-Injectors in Public Places
With food allergy on the rise (it now effects over 15 million people in the U.S.), first time allergic emergencies are also on the rise. Georgia, one of the first states to pass legislation that allows epinephrine auto-injectors to be stocked in schools, is now working on a bill that will allow for epinephrine auto-injectors to be stocked in public places. Places such as, theme parks, restaurants, resorts, camps, sports arenas, as well as other public venues. The bill will allow for organizations to obtain epinephrine auto-injectors, and authorizes trained employees to administer them as well in the event of an anaphylaxis emergency.
Those who are already prescribed an auto-injector, like an Epipen® or Auvi-Q®, should make sure they are well trained in their use, and always carry them with them. Using a carrying case like RescueShot Case makes carrying either one or two Epipen® or Auvi-Q® easy. For more information on the RescueShot Case Epipen® or Auvi-Q® carrying case check out www.rescueshotcase.com
These carrying cases are available in a number of colors.
Hopefully, this bill will pass and become a landmark for the rest of the country in expanding the epinephrine auto-injector laws to public places all across the United States. As food allergies, and anaphylaxis emergencies become more commonplace this law can really make a difference and save lives. It’s worthwhile calling your state legislature and ask them to work on such a bill. Let’s get all states involved to help save lives!!
