If you live in Connecticut please read
The State of CT passed a bill authorizing rescue squads to carry and administer epinephrine. However, this doesn't mean that all rescue squads now automatically carry and administer epinephrine. I was just on the FAAN website, which said that the rescue squads still have to apply for authorization from the state. Apparently the law authorized EMTs to carry and administer epinephrine but does not automatically require that they do so.
So call the rescue squad serving your town and see if they now carry epinephrine. If not, convince them to become authorized.
