Assembly Bill 1651 – Requires School Districts To Store Emergency Epinephrine Auto-Injectors In An Accessible Location And Provide Notice Of The Location
School districts, county offices of education, and charter schools are required to provide emergency epinephrine auto-injectors to school nurses or trained volunteer personnel, and authorizes school nurses and trained personnel to use epinephrine auto-injectors to provide emergency medical aid to persons suffering, or reasonably believed to be suffering, from an anaphylactic reaction. The definitions of “volunteer” and “trained personnel” mean an employee who has volunteered to administer epinephrine auto-injectors.
This bill requires school districts, county offices of education, and charter schools store emergency epinephrine auto-injectors in an accessible location and provide the location in an annual notice. This bill expands the definition of “volunteer” and “trained personnel” to include the holder of an Activity Supervisor Clearance Certificate who has volunteered to administer epinephrine auto-injectors.
(AB 1651 amends Education Code Section 49414.)
