Life-saving EpiPens in Public places
We have come so far in Australia saving every day Australian lives with defibrillators stocked in many public places.
Here @OliversChoiceFoodAllergies we think EpiPens should also be stocked in all the same places along side the defibrillator machines which have saved so many lives already with this initiative.
Adrenalin is the first line treatment in reversing an anaphylactic reaction. Giving this life saving medication within minutes of a severe reaction could be the difference between life and death. This is why we need to have EpiPens in public places.
Who else thinks this should happen in Australia?
Sign the petition and let's take this to Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull.

Life-saving EpiPens available in Public places.
Dear Mr Turnbull,
We put forward the suggestion of adding life saving EpiPens along side the defibrillators that are already in so many important public places. The defibrillator initiative has saved so many lives. Two lives were saved down the road from where we live on the Great Ocean Road.
With Australia having the highest rate of allergies per capita and with this number rising for no apparent reason we believe that having EpiPens along side of defibrillators adds yet another level of safety for our community and the general public who may be having an anaphylactic reaction for the very first time. Having an EpiPen close by could be the difference between life and death.
Looking forward to hearing from you in relation to this initiative and how we can work together to make this happen.
