Deaf Alerter

The Deaf Alerter is a radio-based fire alarm warning and public address messaging system for Deaf and hard of hearing people.  The individual carries a receiver which will vibrate strongly when a fire alarm is activated in the building.

The University of Manchester currently has the deaf alerter system installed in some of the University's buildings

The Deaf Alerter system is managed by Estates, but you can collect a Deaf Alarm from the DASS office. You should complete a PEEP (Personal Emergency Evacuation Plan) with your line manager prior to obtaining an alarm. Safety Services can provide advice and guidance on PEEPS.
