Hello
I am trying to find a way to use Alexa for home safety concerns: when someone who lives alone, needs to call for help after a fall. In Montreal, I'm told that 300 persons a day call 911 for help in exactly those circumstances. They fall but are unable to get back up and cannot reach phone. Often, they are not injured by the fall itself but might spend the night on the cold hard floor simply due to a lack of help available. How might Alexa be endowed with skills for calling/emailing neighbours or friends?

I heard that Android users can send voice activated texts, which is a great start (I am an Apple user).
I also heard about something called Echo Connect which seems to require a land line in order to work.
Thanks for your help.
