Kansas Fire Safety Solutions will accept and approve applications from people who are deaf or hard of hearing; install free smoke alarms that meet the unique needs of these individuals; plan a home fire drill specific to each home, and assist with a home safety survey to prevent fires, burns, falls, and other common home injuries. Kansans of all ages with a documented hearing impairment (deaf or hard of hearing), are eligible.
