I had a really scary health scare today, and have realised it could happen again when I'm home alone with the kids. Is 3 too young to teach DS how to call 000, and how would I even go about teaching him?

Teaching to call 000

3 is not too young! And I believe there are books at most bookstores and Kmart and stuff that are for teaching kids to call 000

DD knows to call 000 and say what's happened. She also know her full name and address. In an emergency situation though I do think 3 may be too young to completely understand what they have to do and follow through depending on the child IYKWIM.
If anything happened though if she didn't call 000 I know she would call DH or my Mum as she knows who to use my phone and calls them all the time!
When I was throwing up (MS) one day she called DH and said she was worried because I was being sick.

I worry mainly that our address is long and street name a bit difficult for him to pronounce so others would understand. I may teach him to call daddy instead, at least for now.

Fobs I'm ok. Had a gallbladder attack, was walking home from a cafe to get panedeine and suddenly couldn't see or hear anything, walked into the traffic and almost fainted I thankfully made it home but am now scared it will happen again. Thank goodness DP was home today and the kids were with him.

I thought Emergency Services now use caller id/gps to confirm where the call is coming from?

I've framed it for DS, "what should you do if Mummy falls over and she can't get up or seems to be asleep". I taught him a while ago that he need to go to the phone and press 000 and then the green button. I've let him practice phoning my parents a few times so he gets the hang of using the phone.
