Hearing Impaired Smoke Alarms
The Cape Coral Fire Department has been awarded a grant from FEMA to install specialized smoke alarm aids in the homes of people who are deaf or hard of hearing. Those who wear hearing aids or cochlear implants that they remove when sleeping also require these specialized alarms in their homes. These alarms utilize bed shakers and strobe lights to warn those who can’t hear audible alarms that there is either fire danger. This program is purely voluntary and is offered to person(s) who meet the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) definition of qualified individual with a disability, specifically those deaf or hard of hearing. This program is only for persons living in the Cape Coral Fire Department’s service area. There are a limited number of these specialized smoke alarm aids available and will be provided on a first come, first served basis to those qualified individuals who submit an application with all appropriate paperwork. To apply, fill out the application below or call (239) 242-3264. To complete an application on a mobile device, please click HERE.
