Gov. Rick Scott recently signed a bill that will help protect people who suffer from an allergic reaction in a public place. It allows public places like restaurants, amusement parks, sports arenas and more to carry and use epinephrine without worrying about liability.

Ms. Bresch said schools were just the first step in a plan to make emergency epinephrine injectors more widely available in restaurants, airplanes and other public places, much as external defibrillators are today.

Ms. Acebal’s group has not taken a position on placing injectors in public places other than schools. Dr. Sicherer said the issue became less clear in settings like restaurants, where a waiter might not be able to differentiate between choking, a heart attack or anaphylaxis.

EpiPen® locations will roll out at Disney parks and on cruise ships beginning in late 2014. In addition to emergency medical services (EMS), nurses trained to administer EpiPen Auto-Injectors are available during First Aid station operating hours to assist guests experiencing a severe allergic reaction.
