Visual Fire Alarms Needed

For more than seven years, we have pushed for improved and equitable fire safety for culturally deaf, oral deaf, deafened and hard of hearing residents: for the Ontario government to enact legislation to amend the Ontario Fire Code to incorporate visual fire alarms and duty to landlords and owners of rental housing and long-term care facilities to comply; and for financial assistance to mitigate the costs of installing hard wired strobe alarms to alert people in their homes.
