New school rule will save lives

by

LANSING (WKZO) -- A new state law will be in effect when school begins this week, that requires that each school have two EPI-pens available, and two staff members who are trained to use them.

Students who have food allergies or severe reactions to insect stings can go into Anaphylactic shock if exposed, and a simple administration of the epinephrin injections can be the difference between life and death, in those first critical minutes.

25% of those who have such reactions don’t even know they may be allergic to certain foods, or have never been stung by a bee.
