Deaf Awareness

The Scottish Fire and Rescue Service are proud to support Deaf Awareness Week 2017 and help raise awareness of the issues affecting the 1 in 6 people in the UK who are deaf or have hearing loss.

Last year, in partnership with Scottish charity Deaf Connections, we produced a series of British Sign Language (BSL) videos of some of our key leaflets and adverts.  This year Prevention & Protection colleagues in East Ayrshire, North Ayrshire and South Ayrshire (ENSA) have been working with local organisations ‘Ayrshire Film Company’ and ‘The Third Sector Interface’ in North Ayrshire to produce a new British Sign Language (BSL) video covering our Your Guide to Fire Safety booklet.
