Revolving light installed in city office to alert Deaf visitor for emergency in Hokkaido

June 11, 2014

Obihiro-shi, Hokkaido in Japan's northern island installed the red-colored revolving light in the first floor of the city office building so that a Deaf/deaf person could perceive the danger in emergencies, such as a fire.

The light was set on a pillar in both the sides of the front counter of the welfare division for persons with disabilities which a Deaf/deaf person often visits.

Since there is also the personnel who is hearing loss, it was considered that one can see the light from everywhere in the whole floor.
