OVER 9 MILLION COULD LOSE MORE THAN JUST THEIR HEARING Wednesday 13 February 2008 PDF Print With 9 million people registered as deaf or hard of hearing in the UK and a further 4 million losing their hearing but doing nothing about it, the smoke or carbon monoxide alarm aisle in DIY stores was of little or no use to a substantial percentage of the UK population leaving them at serious risk. Expensive hardwired solutions can be tracked down in specialist stores but thanks to Wi-Safe from FireAngel an affordable wireless system is now on the shelves of B&Q and available to the mass market. The Wi-Safe vibrating alarm can be placed underneath a pillow or cushion and will vibrate powerfully in the event of a fire or carbon monoxide leak. When a Wi-Safe Smoke Alarm or Wi-Safe Carbon Monoxide Alarm is triggered they instantly transmit a signal to the vibrating alarm, which will vibrate until it has woken those in danger. Graham Whitworth, CEO, FireAngel commented: “With the Wi-Safe Vibrating Alarm we are hoping to help those most vulnerable to the results of a fire or carbon monoxide leak in the home.” “Not only could this help the deaf and hearing impaired but also heavy sleepers, such as the elderly or children.” If you are concerned about your hearing why not call the RNID hearing test line on Tel 0845 600 5555.
