With a history of medical problems, Nancy recently experienced complications after a surgery that led her to call 911 for help.
And those complications led to different things running through her mind.
"I'm having a heart attack, that was the first thing, and when they come in and ask you questions, you can't think, you're just like get me out of here, get me to the hospital," said Fay.
But thanks to a special program, Nancy didn't have to worry about answering questions during her scare last month.
"All I had to do was point to my refrigerator and say Yellow Dot," she said.
Nancy's friend, Barbara Perry had the idea to bring the Yellow Dot Program to their Cherrywood Community in Clinton.
And it didn't take long for Nancy to be on board with everything.
The free program is designed to help first responders provide the attention needed as quickly as possible for those in danger.
Nancy has a yellow sticker on her front door, car door, a yellow pamphlet with medical information in her glove compartment, and even her freezer.
All of these things are part of the program.
"The personnel that is there to help you can pull your medical information out of a glove compartment or your freezer to help you better," said Barbara Perry.
"It was all there.... about my medicines, my medical history, my doctors, what hospital I want to go to, who's going to take care of my dog and who to notify in case of an emergency," said Fay.
Now that Cherrywood Community is a Yellow Dot Community, Barbara and Nancy say they hope more residents get on board like them.
