On January 1, 2016 the EMS Authority began reviewing and approving training programs to provide training and certification for the administration of epinephrine auto-injectors to the general public and off-duty EMS personnel. Certification from an approved training program will allow a layperson or off-duty EMS personnel to obtain a prescription for and administer an epinephrine auto-injector to a person experiencing anaphylaxis, with civil liability protection, when acting in good faith and not for compensation.
For more information please refer to the regulations. Ready SF (www.readysf.com) is the only CA EMS-A approved training program in Northern California.
