Local leaders – including police and fire departments, Mayor and City Leaders, key employers, hospitals and clinics and organizations that serve seniors.

Media - local media plays a key role in raising awareness of epilepsy throughout the community.

Volunteers – volunteers are important to keep the message/awareness of epilepsy and seizures going throughout the year.
