EpiPen

DuPage County will be the first county in Illinois to provide Epipens to its deputies.

The auto-injectors can save the life of a person who goes into shock from an allergy, a bee sting, or any other condition that requires an emergency shot of epinephrine.

Epipens will be distributed to sheriff’s department patrol cars.
