This question may seem pretty benign but I think it fits well under the heading of "Disaster Preparedness".
I am an archaeologist. My job requires me to dig holes in the ground in remote areas (far from help). At least once a year someone on my crew puts their shovel through a hornet nest and gets badly stung. I have tried many times to get Epipens included in our first aid kit but my boss tells me a prescription is required to acquire them.
Is there any way you know of for me to get ahold of some Epipens?
ps. your "select a topic area" sucks. I couldn't post this question without choosing a topic (none of which applied to my question).
