DEAF people from Ellesmere Port can learn to protect their homes from fire at a roadshow rolling into town as part of Deafness Awareness Week 2011.
It marks the start of a year-long series of events run by Cheshire Fire and Rescue Service and the Deafness Support Network.
The hi-tech community roadshow vehicle will be at Ellesmere Port Market between 10am and 3pm on Tuesday, May 3.
The event is co-ordinated by Melanie Pitts, deaf persons advocate, who said: “Visitors to our roadshow will be able find out about the specialist support available to them to make their homes safer, look at equipment designed to alert them to a fire and find out about our online home safety assessment service.”
A British sign language interpreter will be on hand to assist and information cards will be available showing the signs and signals that can be used in an emergency.
