COUNTRY FIRE SERVICE IMPROVES ACCESSIBILITY
After an unprecedented bushfire season, Cherry Gardens Country Fire Service (CFS) reached out to Deaf Can:Do to facilitate training so that they would be better prepared to communicate and assist Deaf and hard of hearing people in the community.
Thanks to a grant from The Lions Club of the City of Adelaide, Deaf Can:Do was able to design a specific course for the CFS brigade, empowering them with tools and knowledge to communicate during emergencies.
“I was interested in learning how to communicate with Deaf people during an emergency situation. I have a family members with a cochlear implant who uses sign language to communicate.”

Deaf Can:Do offers community and corporate Auslan and Deaf Awareness packages that are flexible and unique. We will work with you to design a package that suits your needs.
