The EFEPA recognizes how important law enforcement response can be to the health and safety of people experiencing seizures. Proper training responding to a seizure is particularly important considering the likelihood of law enforcement personnel encountering such a medical event – there are nearly three million Americans subject to seizures caused by epilepsy. This training is designed to prepare law enforcement personnel to recognize various types of seizures and provide them with the information necessary to provide appropriate treatment.

This training is MPOETC-approved for 1.5 hours of CLEE credit. Our course ID # of CLE01435.

For questions please contact Mary Loughlin (Northeast Resource Coordinator) at epilepsywv@efepa.org
