Most people don’t think about preparing for emergencies until it’s too late. That’s not good for anyone but could be disastrous for someone with a hearing loss. This webinar will bring you the latest on emergency access, how you can prepare and what government and industry are working on to make the technologies we use every day more helpful in emergencies.
