pI didn't know where to start. I am trying to find out what states have laws that the EMT's to carry and administer the Epi-pens. I just learned that Washington State was the 11th to pass such a law, but can't seem to find out what the other 10 states are.br /
Please post if you even know one more. Thank you./p

I would also recommend you contact your local fire/rescue department. Colorado does not have a law covering this issue so it is up to individual juristictions to decide. In my case the fire house up the road carries epinephrine on-board, the fire house by my son's next school is in the next county and does not carry epi. So I have plans to have extras epi-pens at the school to carryover any extended response times from EMS should the need arise. Luckily they are only a few short minutes from the hospital.
