DFV ALARM/EMERGENCY PREPAREDNESS PROGRAM (DEPP)
HOW CAN I DONATE?
We need donors and organizations to help us raise the funds for the equipment needed to help keep families with hard of hearing or deaf family members safe during emergencies. We are now reaching out to Washtenaw, Jackson and Lenawee Counties.
We also need people willing to pass out information or direct interested people to us so we can help them become part of this project.
The goal of the DFV Emergency Preparedness Program (DEPP) is to get one alarm system for every hard of hearing or deaf child for free, that connects a weather radio, smoke alarm, and a carbon monoxide alarm to a bed shaker to wake the hard of hearing sleeper. It also has a bright LED light that can be “seen” by many visually impaired users.
If you would like to request an alarm, please contact us and we can get you on the list today.
