February 17, 2014 Brighton Area Fire Department offering free smoke detectors to hearing impaired residents
The Brighton Area Fire Authority is working with local residents to ensure proper smoke alarms for people with hearing impairments. The Fire Authority was a recipient of a 2013 grant in which 200 units were purchased for people who are deaf or have hearing impairments.
The Authority worked with Brighton Area Schools and Livingston Educational Service Agency to help determine the need of the area specifically children who meet the criteria. The device is a Life Tone unit which is paired to a smoke alarm in the home and activates when the smoke alarm senses smoke. The life tone unit looks like an alarm clock and re-transmits the alarm in a different tone and includes a device to physically shake the bed.
"The units will be installed by our firefighters who will also check the home's smoke alarms, conduct a brief fire safety check" commented Fire Chief Michael O'Brian. "This is part of our program to make sure all our residents have working smoke alarms."
To request a unit the resident should contact Lt. Lauren Brookins via email at email@example.com to setup an installation time. Based on the number of requests, the Authority may have to prioritize the installations.
The Authority has plenty of regular smoke alarms as well. Those who live in Brighton Township, Genoa Township or the City of Brighton who would like their smoke alarms checked or need an installation can contact Brighton Area Fire Headquarters at 810-229-6640
