Deaf Alerter is a fire alarm messaging system designed for people who are deaf or hard of hearing.
If a fire alarm goes off in a building that has Deaf Alerter installed, then a notification will be sent to all ‘Alerter’ devices within that building.
The Deaf Alerter system consists of two important parts:
- ‘Transmitter’ technology installed in buildings.
- Portable Alerter devices (sometimes known as ‘receivers’ or ‘pagers’) for individuals to carry.
If a fire alarm goes off in a building where a Deaf Alerter transmitter has been installed, then the transmitter will send a notification to all portable Alerter devices within that building. A visual message will pop up on the devices’ screens, and the devices will vibrate strongly.
Important: People who are provided with an Alerter device should carry it at all times in order to receive these notifications.
We have invested heavily in this safety system so now most of our buildings have Deaf Alerter coverage.
You’ll know if a building has full Deaf Alerter coverage as the Deaf Alerter symbol will be displayed on the entrance doorway.
