Letter to the editor: Cat triggers false emergency

I have a Phillips Lifeline hanging round my neck on a cord. Recently I took it off as usual to take a shower, set it down in the bathroom and when I got back out my cat was playing with it on the floor.
Within minutes the Middlebury Regional EMS was at the door and I had to explain that undoubtedly the button had been triggered by my cat. (I then also found the phone message in response to the button being pushed.)
So, I want to apologize to the people who responded so promptly — and unnecessarily as it turned out. They provide a wonderful service and knowing this is very comforting to me.
My deep thanks to everyone.
