Auditory alarms, whether activated by heat, smoke, or toxic fumes, warn of imminent danger by sound. For customers or employes who are Deaf or have hearing loss, these life saving emergency notification measures fail completely. Systems that incorporate high-intensity flash/strobe lights that are strong enough to attract attention are essential to the safety of your customers or employees who may be deaf, oral deaf, deafened, or hard of hearing.

Assistive listening systems include FM, Infrared or loop systems. They are designed to connect the sound from the main speaker, sound system or other audio source and send the signal directly to wireless receivers worn by people with a hearing loss. The receivers allow individuals to adjust the volume to a comfortable level and can be used with a variety of headsets, including neckloop listening accessories for those with telecoil equipped hearing aids. Assistive Listening systems help to reduce background noise and compensate for poor room acoustics or distance from the sound source. Assistive Listening Systems can be portable and/or permanently installed and are recommended for all meeting assemblies where people with a hearing loss are present including; tours, lectures, small to large meeting venues, classrooms, places of worship, courtrooms, and theatres.

Soundfield systems are portable sound systems which clearly amplify a presenters/teachers voice. Consisting of one or more microphones and one or more loudspeakers, Soundfield Systems provide even sound coverage within a room.

In the classroom, hearing is essential for learning. In meeting rooms, presentations are lost if they are not audible. Soundfield Systems provide the amplification you need, when you need it. It is the most flexible amplification solution for classrooms, boardrooms, nursing homes and small to mid-sized meeting rooms.

Meghan Murray was a university student from Oshawa, Ontario with plans to follow in her grandfather’s footsteps and become a police officer. When she was 14, she was diagnosed with a rare, genetic disease called neurofibromatosis type 2. The disease -- which affects approximately 1 in 40,000 people worldwide -- causes tumour growth on nerves and can lead to gradual, permanent hearing loss. Because of the nature of the disease, Meghan’s hearing cannot be augmented with cochlear implants or through the use of hearing aids.

Toronto jazz great thanks CHS with Gift of Gratitude

To say that music – specifically jazz music – is Terry Sheard’s life would be an understatement. The 92-year-old is something of a legend in the Toronto jazz community, having dedicated his life to the creation and appreciation of jazz music. He sat as a board member for the JAZZ-FM radio station for 15 years, and to this day works with Humber College and the Toronto Musicians Association to promote the exceptional musical talent coming out of the region.
