Working smoke alarms save lives. However, people who are deaf or hard of hearing may not be able to depend on the traditional smoke alarm to alert them to a fire. The Frankfort Fire & EMS Department has been awarded a grant from FEMA to install specialized smoke alarm aids in the homes of people who have a hearing impairment, deaf, or other special needs. Those who wear hearing aids or cochlear implants that they remove when sleeping also qualify for 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 smoke or fire danger. This is a new service that Frankfort Fire & EMS Department is proud to provide with the full support of the Board of Commissioners. There is no cost to the applicant or recipient of these special devices.
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. To apply, fill out the application below or call (502) 875-8539 with any program or application questions.
