This is going to sound stupid but how do I know what my state laws are. I mean like kids able to carry epis on them at school or EMTS on them. Things like that.

Check with FAAN. Your State Education Department probably has the information as well.

What state are you from? If you are willing to share there are a lot of very knowledegeable people who may be able to give you specific links and advice from that state.

You might want to move this over to the schools section because you may get more reponses.

According to AANMA, Alabama has passed legislation which protects student rights to possess and self-administer prescribed lifesaving asthma and anaphylaxis medications.

That is great! Thank you. I looked and looked and couldn't find anything on AL. I was thinking FAANs website said AL was not allowed to carry epis on them in class. This is great news. I can move on to the next law that needs to be addressed in AL.

FAAN is a really good place to go to for all your allergy information.

This site might help other people looking for statewide guidelines. (But unfortunately FAAN doesn't list the guidelines for Alabama on this database.)
