And they all have emergency kits and medical kits with them as well. But in this particular case he wasn't able to use it.
Glad he's okay. This interests me. Would the emergency/medical kits have epi pens? and if so, why was he not able to use it? and also where is this at? wbir?

Sometimes symptoms can come on rapidly and a person can be disorientated quickly. No one should be expected to be able to give themselves an epipen. If the employee was in the field working on an assignment they may have left their "kit" in the vehicle. Glad this employee made a full recovery.
