Tennessee has a law in place for using epinephrine in emergency situations.
Establishes provisions governing school personnel treating an allergic reaction in the event a student’s personal epinephrine auto-injector is not available or the student is having a reaction for the first time. – Amends TCA Title 49. 
Congratulations! Your state has passed stock-epinephrine laws or regulations that permit an emergency supply of epinephrine auto-injectors to be used in a school. However, our job is not done yet. Each law or regulation must be implemented or put into action by a board or an agency.
The agency or board will then issue administrative rules, guidelines or best practices explaining in detail how it intends to put the law into effect and what a mother, father, caregiver, physician, pharmacist or school nurse must do to comply with the law. AANMA is an active resource in these states assisting administrators in a seamless rollout of the stock-epinephrine laws.
