The following people should know that you have a child at home on oxygen and/or apnea monitor:
- Your local fire department
- The gas, electric, and telephone companies. Ask if they have a "priority service listing." Your home would receive priority in case of power or phone failures and repairs. Your physician, case manager, social worker, or home care company can assist with letters to these companies, if needed.
- Neighbors and relatives that will be available in case you need assistance with your child or other children in an emergency
