Free smoke detectors

Assistive Technology of Kansas is offering a free program this summer for persons who are deaf or hearing impaired. ATK will provide and install free smoke detectors that flash and also ones that have bed shakers. Applications are available at the senior center, 907 N. 10th St., to apply for this wonderful opportunity. The application is short, requiring only name, address, phone number, etc., plus proof from your physician or audiologist that you (or someone in your household) is hearing impaired. Applications should be completed by mid-August because this program ends Sept. 1. Don't delay. Drop by the senior center for your application.
