THE PROBLEM

8% of children now have food allergies. 25% of anaphylaxis reactions in schools occur in students without previous food allergy diagnosis.

OUR SOLUTION

Make epinephrine - a life-saving drug - as commonplace and accessible as fire extinguishers and AEDs with a fully customizable, conspicuous cabinet.

WHY WE NEED PUBLIC ACCESS EPINEPHRINE

In an anaphylaxis emergency, when seconds count
we have to eliminate the following questions:

  • WHERE

    is the epinephrine? Locked in the nurse's office? Where is the nurse?

  • WHAT

    administrative red tape will slow down finding and administering medication?

  • HOW

    can you administer medication amidst panic and chaos?

  • WHEN

    will an ambulance arrive if we can't find or use the epinephrine?




ELIMINATE PANIC AND CONFUSION

We do this by installing an Allergy Emergency Kit™ on the wall closest to the nut-free table in the lunch room, in each major wing of the school, and in a gymnasium that is closest to the outside playing fields. Then:

  • An administrator can open the cabinet with a key
  • OR anyone can break the window to access supplies
  • Spend valuable seconds calling 911 and administering medication
  • Don't worry - it's not real glass!

  • Brandon Wilson

    Inventor, the Original Allergy Emergency Kit

    My name is Brandon Wilson. When my daughter was just two years old we discovered, the hard way, that she was highly allergic to cashews (and other tree nuts). As I followed the ambulance to the hospital I realized that I had just been instantly moved from the "what the heck is with all these nut allergic kids?" category to the "OH MY GOD, what do I do about my nut allergic kid!!!" category.

    My wife Jennifer and I are not necessarily "laid back" people in the first place - and what I have noticed about other parents - especially parents of peanut allergic children - is a constant state of alert, of anxiety, that our wonderful children are wandering through a world where nuts and other allergens are ubiquitous - and people are frequently OBLIVIOUS to the seriousness and specific nature of the problem.

    What I have been particularly incensed by is the inability of people to imagine changing their behavior in regard to lunch choices, baked goods and holiday feasts to truly make a gathering place safe for the young (pre-age of reason kids).

    When you can't necessarily trust anyone, even family, to truly keep nuts away from your child, you are left with the next level of preparedness - ensuring that you will never be ANYWHERE without access to Benadryl and Epinephrine.

  • The Solution

    The Original Allergy Emergency Kit

    With this in mind, I created a wall-mounted Allergy Emergency Kit™ which puts Benadryl and Epinephrine in a secure, conspicuous and 24/7/365 accessible place - appropriate for anywhere where an anaphalactic allergic reaction could happen - especially school lunch rooms (nuts), gym class (bee stings) and seafood restaurants (shellfish).

    Until we, as a society, can figure out what causes anaphalactic allergies - and how to prevent such severe reactions, the only way to ensure the safety of our children is to ensure that emergency supplies are always just seconds away - and to raise awareness in the general population through conspicuous display of emergency materials so that everyone starts having anaphylaxis risks, symptoms and first aid in the back of their mind when they are caring for our children.

    This Original Allergy Emergency Kit™ product line is only one step toward a safer environment for our kids - but if we can save just one life - just one child in the whole world - I will consider this effort well worth whatever time and money it takes to bring it to market.
