Safety and security tips for navigating hearing loss
Safety and Security Campaign
Imagine you wake up to an emergency and can’t find your hearing aid or cochlear implant processor (or the batteries have died). What do you do? How do you contact emergency services? For years, this has been a worry for those in the deaf and hard of hearing communities.
We set out to create an awareness campaign for a new service that has been offered to most Canadians: Text with 911 (or T9-1-1), which allows people to engage in a text conversation with 911 call centres.
It is Hear Québec’s hope that our campaign will promote equality of access to essential services and make a significant impact for those in the hard of hearing community, many of whom require this service in case of emergency.
