How Can People With Hearing Loss Be Ready For An Emergency

How Can People With Hearing Loss Be Ready For An Emergency    

Use Smoke Detectors And Alert Devices With Visual Warnings, And Inform First Responders Of Disability    

Emergency alerts are usually loud sounds, such as an alarm or a smoke detector. This is a disadvantage for people with hearing loss. There are ways for them to prepare themselves and let know other people that they have this disability. The first thing is to put an emergency kit with extra batteries for hearing aids or chargers, a pen and paper to communicate with others, and emergency index cards to inform others that the person has hearing loss, along with emergency contacts and relevant information, such as other health conditions, medications, and allergies. Also, it is important to use alert devices, such as smoke detectors, with visual warnings, such as strobe lights or mattress vibrators, and also inform the neighbors of hearing loss. In case of an emergency, first responders must be informed clearly of the disability and asked to talk slowly while watching the person with hearing loss. More Information click here.
