The new EMT law that my mother in law (Ida Ballasiotes) sponsored became law
as of Jan. 1 in Washington State. This is an inspiration to all the other
state legislators that are "thinking" about enacting a similar law. ...

...I know the allergy (in this article)is for walnuts, not peanuts, but I still think everyone that reads this discussion board would be interested...

year. (Mary Kay wrote)

This is a very positive article on how changing the laws can make a difference and save people's lives. If you want to make a difference in your state and get Legislators to change the law regarding EMT's in your state please contact FAN to get their packet and information on it.
I just have to say, I feel that my son having a peanut allergy indirectly saved this woman's life. Ida Ballasiotes, the WA State Representative that got this law enacted, would not have been so determined had she not had a grandson with a peanut allergy.
