    Default Help needed

    Brothers and Sisters
    Greetings. Iím wondering if I can trouble you for a little help. One of my firefighters has been recently put on sick leave due to hearing problems. He can pass an aided (with hearing aids) hearing test, but canít pass an unaided test. Iím trying to find what other departments do in this situation. Any information you can provide or maybe point me in the right direction where to find it would be greatly appreciated.

    Stay safe
    Shut the nozzle stupid, thats' smoke not fire!

    You might want to find someone who is familier with the ADA (Americans with Disabilities Act) to see what accomodations if any can be afforded.

    Can't speak much to the legalities behind it, but I know two of our career guys are dependent on bi-lateral hearing aids, and are perfectly fine with all our duties.
