Emergency Preparedness and Weather Alert Radios for People Who are Deaf or Hearing Impaired
NWGA Center for Independent Living (NWGA CIL) and Floyd County Emergency Management is pleased to announce that we are partnering together to help citizens of Floyd County who are deaf or hearing impaired to be alerted to inclement weather. We are distributing weather alert radios with strobe lights and vibrating alarms. Any deaf or hearing-impaired resident of Floyd County can sign up as an NWGA CIL consumer. We will then issue one of these life-saving alert radios free of charge from our office.
