Low-Frequency Fire Alarms for the Deaf and Hard of Hearing
The American Red Cross (Florida’s Southern Gulf Coast Region), the Deaf Service Center of Southwest Florida and the Iona-McGregor Fire Department have launched a program to help provide low-frequency fire alarms to deaf and hard-of-hearing southwest Florida citizens.
Through a grant provided by the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA), the Red Cross has purchased several dozen alarms to be given free-of-charge to qualifying candidates.
Residents are welcome to apply or learn more about the program by contacting the Lee County Red Cross at 239-278-3401. The application window will close March 31, at which point candidates who meet the eligibility requirements will be notified. This is a temporary program that will continue only until the current stock of alarms is depleted.
For more information, contact John Cain at the American Red Cross (239-278-3401).
