What should I do if I need to call the paramedics and my door is locked but I can't get to the door?


I live alone and I have often given this a lot of thought. I'm not sick or anything right now but I think it's a good idea to plan ahead. I'm 61 years old and I'm just concerned that if I were to fall, have a heart attack, etc. what should I do once the paramedics get here and I can't get to the door? For safety reasons, I always keep my door locked.

    I haven't had to call the paramedics in a while. I was just wondering what I should do in case anything like this should happen in the future. I always keep my door locked!!!! I keep my cell phone with me at all times. No, I dont' have MAB.

    I'm afraid I don't have any windows in any of my doors but this is a good suggestion. I do have a peep hole in my back door. I also have a large windown next to my front door but I don't think that will work. Maybe I will call my local EMT service
