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.

In-house Emergency Paging System

A wireless paging system, connected to your fire panel, immediately notifies users of emergency situations via a vibrating pager, or by sending a text message to LCD displays placed throughout your facility, keeping everyone in your place of business aware of emergency alerts.

Please speak to one of our Consultants for other solutions that may work for you.

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.

In the Spring of 2018, the Canadian Hearing Society launched a new contest and fundraising initiative called Breaking Barriers. The contest encouraged people to submit a personal story of how they’re breaking down barriers for Deaf and hard of hearing Canadians.

This year, our grand prize winner was Jacki Andre. Read her inspiring story below – and stay tuned for more information on next year’s Breaking Barriers campaign soon!

 

How I'm breaking down barriers
By Jacki Andre

When I saw the posting for summer jobs at the Canadian Hearing Society (CHS) on Indeed, I had never heard of CHS before. I am so grateful that I was given this opportunity as I have learned so much in eight weeks. The first few weeks I spent researching various issues relating to mental health in the Deaf community. I joked that my “mind was being blown,” but it was the truth. The scientific articles gave me a much-needed eye-opening to some of the dynamics and increased prevalence of mental health issues in the community.

When our son, Jacob, was diagnosed with hearing loss at three months old, we were concerned about what this might mean for him in the future. Luckily, we were connected with Almut Vogel, a speech-language pathologist at the Canadian Hearing Society (CHS), for weekly speech therapy.
