Join Us to Learn About Alerting Devices!
At night without hearing aids, can you hear the . . .
Fire Alarm?
Crying Baby?
Door Bell?
Alarm Clock?
Kitchen Timer?

Christine Cubelo, a volunteer with the National Consumer Hearing Assistive Technology Trainers (NCHATT) Program, will be presenting on Alerting Devices. If you have any degree of hearing loss, regardless of whether you have hearing aids or cochlear implants, this class is for you. There are many devices you can place in your home to help make sure you don’t miss the doorbell, the baby crying, the oven alarm, or the smoke alarm. The most common time for fire emergencies to happen is at night when we’re asleep, and almost every person with hearing loss sleeps through the alarm!! Christine will also demonstrate a sample device called a Bed Shaker! Please join us for this free workshop where there will be light refreshments available.

Come with your questions and comments. Enjoy discussions and compare notes with others who have hearing loss.

Light refreshments will be served • Captioning available • Round Table Discussion • www.hla-jax.org • twitter.com/hlaajaxflorida • www.facebook.com/HLAAJacksonvilleChapter

(Unless otherwise announced, meetings are held the first Saturday of Jan., Mar., May, Sept., Nov.)

Our meetings are hearing accessible.

Please join us if hearing loss affects you or your loved one.
