Deaf & Hard of Hearing

Program for the Deaf & Hard of Hearing

The Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) contributed to the funding of the Marietta Fire Department's Inspection Program for the Deaf and Hard of Hearing through its Fire Prevention and Safety Grant. The program's design consisted of several elements that included the purchase and installation of free Lifetone HL Bedside Fire Alarms. By combining our funds with the generous grant from FEMA, we were able to purchase a finite number of alarms.

Regrettably, we have exhausted our supply and therefore have discontinued that portion of the project. We do, however, continue to advocate to the Deaf and hard of hearing community the use of alerting devices such as the Lifetone Bedside Fire Alarm as we seek to serve and protect from fire all who reside in or pass through the City of Marietta.
