First Aid 

Epi Pens

First Aid Officers are not to be supplied with Epi-Pens for their first aid kits, because specific training and certificates need to be obtained in accordance with the Poisons and Therapeutic Goods Act Amendment Regulation 2005.

In any case of anaphylaxis, First Aid Officers are to call 000 for emergency assistance.  Once the ambulance has been called, then call Security Services on 4921 5888 (Newcastle Campus and City Precinct), 4348 4222 (Central Coast) or 0412 595 054 (Port Macquarie) who will help direct the ambulance to your location.
