Who We Are
The Coalition for Lifesaving Epinephrine Access and Responsibility (CLEAR) is a diverse, nonpartisan coalition of associations, non-profits, industry stakeholders, and activists who want to ensure that epinephrine devices are readily available on commercial aircraft. We are a recognized leader in efforts to update safety requirements for airline passengers who experience serious, life-threatening allergic reactions.
Multiple passengers have recently suffered life-threatening allergic attacks on commercial airlines. These terrifying incidences have elevated the critical urgent need for the U.S. Congress and the Administration to begin considering how best to ensure passengers on commercial airplanes have access to lifesaving epinephrine devices.
Currently, these epinephrine devices are not available to passengers on commercial airlines. The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) only requires airlines to carry the “medical grade” (needle, syringe) version of epinephrine which requires medical oversight.
This outdated and ineffectual method is no longer acceptable. Commercial aircraft must be equipped with epinephrine devices to ensure the safety of all passengers – whether or not they have a known allergy.
