Anaphylaxis / EpiPen (Auto-Injector) Policy
The Burlington Parks and Recreation (BPRD) staff seeks to provide a safe environment for staff and participants

appropriately and enabled to access emergency services promptly.
Parent or legal guardian is required to fill out an Authorization to Administer Medication form for each participant re-

medication, directions for use and cautionary statements, if any, contained in such a prescription or required by law.
The EpiPen should be stored in a cooled lunch bag / container and given to the program director upon arrival at the
program. The EpiPen will be kept in a designated area on site.
• The Parks and Recreation Department will not administer epinephrine unless and until a fully completed Autho-
rization Form and Action Plan is provided, regardless of whether or not an EpiPen is provided in advance by or
on behalf of the parent/guardian.
• The program director is responsible for making sure all staff are aware of the location of EpiPen
• The designated EpiPen location should be kept out of reach of program participants
