The National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) celebrates Fire Prevention Week every October. This year, everyone in fire protection is focusing on sounds, whether from smoke detectors or full on emergency sirens, alerting you to fire hazards. Sound awareness is extremely important for visually impaired and blind individuals.
TFS’ parent company Marmic Fire & Safety® released a video interview with members of the Joplin (Missouri) Association for the Blind, a non-profit organization offering assistance to low vision and blind members of Southwest Missouri communities. Have you ever wondered what it’s like to lose your sight during an emergency? Jim Murray and Jim Smith of JAB offer their experiences in both fire and non-fire situations.
