The City of Mississauga is the first municipality in the GTA to provide first aid training regarding allergic reactions to food workers at three City facilities.

Staff involved with contracted concessions at the Hershey Centre, City Centre transit terminal and the Living Arts Centre will be trained in the use of epinephrine auto-injectors, which deliver life-saving medication.

Dr. Susan Waserman, president of the Canadian Society of Allergy and Clinical Immunology, was in Mississauga Feb. 21 to update councillors on the condition, which she describes as a growing epidemic.

My parents live there - I will have to find out who should be sent a thank-you card from the Epi-Men. :)
