The Lafayette Fire Department was recently awarded a grant funding a smoke alarm program for the Deaf and Hard of Hearing.
The equipment includes, a Smoke Detector with built in alarm with horn and flashing strobe light. Also included is a Bed Shaker Alarm, which is a device that emits a very loud low-frequency bedside alert signal. With the mixture of visual, audible and physical alarms, ensuring individuals, who are hard of hearing will be alerted in the event of a fire. A DVD with additional fire safety information is also included.
These devices are FREE to citizens in Lafayette Parish, as well to citizens of the municipalities, such as those residing in the City of Scott.
