Epipen storage in hot sun?
My 15 year old DD has a summer job this year as an assistant lifeguard at a waterpark. Normally she carries her epipen in her purse, which is with her all the time.
But she can't really carry a purse as a lifeguard, and she can carry a fannypack, but I think it would be too hot in the sun.
Any advice on how to keep the epipen "cool" would be appreciated. She may have to keep it in a lunch/thermos type bag, but it's not too practical to carry that around as they are rotating from area to area. Maybe, since they can't eat while working, she can just keep it in the lunch room? I'm a bit leary about that.
I'm trying to figure out a practical solution - any ideas would be greatly appreciated.
