Smoke Alarms for People Who are Deaf in Adams County
Did you know that there are makers of specialized smoke alarms and alert devices for people who are deaf or hard of hearing? This is important because people of Louisville who are deaf or hard of hearing may not benefit from a standard smoke alarm. SERVPRO® of Broomfield/NW Adams County offers these product descriptions from the National Fire Prevention Association for selecting alert devices and specialized smoke alarms:
- Strobe lights flash when the smoke alarm sounds. The lights warn people of a possible fire.
- When people who are deaf are asleep, a pillow or bed shaker can wake them so they can escape. The shaker is activated by the sound of a smoke alarm.
- When people who are hard of hearing are asleep, an alert device that uses a loud, mixed, low-pitched sound can wake them. They may find a pillow or bed shaker helpful. These devices are triggered by the sound of the smoke alarm.
Smoke alarm accessories such as pillow or bed shakers, transmitters, and receivers can be purchased at lifetonesafety.com, safeawake.com, and silentcall.com. Be sure to practice a safety plan and when evacuation is necessary, make sure that everyone knows where to meet outside.
