We even asked what we would do if we were home alone with several children, and I believe the answer was, we'd just have to bring all the children. I know of one member who went in the ambulance with both her children when her DD anaphylaxed.


Just wanted to follow up on this point: we had another meeting with paramedics recently, and they told us that if you are having an emergency at your home and there are children there, you can tell the 911 operator that there are children "on-scene" and they will make sure that someone (a police officer, I believe) is sent to watch over the kids. So if you are the only adult there and have to go in the ambulance, the children can be left in the house and will have adult supervision. They don't all have to go in the ambulance - which is a good thing because there really isn't room for them!

I hadn't remembered that from our initial meeting, and thought it was worth noting.
