Smoke Alarms for the Deaf and Hard of Hearing

Did you know that if you are Deaf or Hard of Hearing…or you know someone that is… the local fire departments will give you, or your friend, free smoke detectors?  There are smoke alarms that use light or vibration to alert the resident.  As people age, they often lose the ability to hear the high pitched sound of a smoke alarm, so there are alarms that emit a mixed, low-pitch sound that is easier to hear.

Here is a link for some local fire departments that provide this service:
