Fire One Inc., CKFR install strobe light smoke alarms in deaf womans home
Unable to hear, Paula Bouwer knew she would have to rely on her sense of smell if a fire erupted in her home but now with strobe light-equipped smoke alarms, she wont have to.
Fire One Protection Inc. based in Kent with a satellite office in Bremerton and Central Kitsap Fire & Rescue installed three strobe smoke alarms, free of charge, in the deaf womans Bremerton home last week. Not only do the smoke alarms emit bright flashes of light when they are triggered, but they also sound. Bouwer lives with her husband, who has partial hearing loss, and their 3-year-old son. Not only will the strobe lights alert Bouwer, but will provide additional warning for her family.
We never thought about having strobe smoke alarms, she said. Im very happy and surprised.
It was actually her neighbor who alerted CKFR of the fact that the family only had sounding smoke alarms in their home.
Shes watching out for us, Bouwer said with a smile.
CKFR then contacted Fire One Protection, Inc. who has the resources for the job.
They agreed they would help
