Larry Weller (Alarmscom)
10 million people in the UK are deaf or hard of hearing, this means that 1 in 6 can not hear or identify a fire alarm. In 20 years time this is due to rise to 14.5 million.
For over 10 years I have been directly involved in the highly specialised business of addressing and offering a solution so that the hearing impaired are aware that a fire alarm or security warning message has been activated.
With a wealth of experience and knowledge within the communication industry for the hearing impaired plus a good understanding of the law and the solutions, that includes the Regulatory Reform Order and The Equality Act which incorporates the Disability Discrimination Act.
Alarmscom are the approved distributor & installer for the DMS system, it sends an instant relay message to all connected mobile phones when the fire alarm is activated. In addition to covering key areas of the law it can also save companies money on external maintenance and monitoring costs.
