Disaster Assistance

Disasters happen: When there is a major disaster, such as wildfire, hurricane, flood, terrorist event, or something of a major magnitude, hearing aids and cochlear implant speech processors can end up lost, stolen, or broken in the chaos. Even smaller events can be a problem. Blizzards, heavy rainstorms, and extended heat waves can lead to damage to the hearing aids, shorter battery life, lost batteries and the inability to hear at a really bad time. Assistive listening devices are very important, too.
