People with hearing difficulties

Here are a few useful tips to consider if you have hearing difficulties:

  • If you have a hearing difficulty you can get a smoke alarm which uses a strobe light and vibrating pads. Alternatively consider linking the alarm system, which can alert you to any danger.
  • In the event of a fire, if it is difficult for you to call 999 yourself, ask a neighbour to do it for you.
  • You can now make use of the SMS text messaging service to alert us to an emergency. You can read more about the Emergency text service here.
