Smoke alarms for deaf and hard of hearing people

We believe that deaf and hard of hearing people should have access to affordable smoke alarms that work for them. That is why we have partnered with Fire and Rescue NSW and the NSW government to bring you the Smoke Alarm Subsidy Scheme (SASS). Under SASS you can apply for a smoke alarm with a strobe light, pillow shaker and beeper for only $20.

If you would like more information about SASS:
