Study: Cell Phone Based Emergency Services

Participants needed for a study of Cell Phone Based Emergency Services

Researchers at the Neil Squire Society in cooperation with the Canadian Association of the Deaf are conducting a study to look at how “911” emergency calls and emergency disaster alerts on cellular phones can be made more accessible.

The goal of this project is to get input from actual cell phone users on how the next generation of emergency services should be designed to ensure accessibility before they are released. Your feedback will be used to make industry and government aware of the unique needs of the Deaf community.

We are currently looking for people who are deaf and currently use cellular phones and would be interested in attending a focus group or completing a brief survey.

Eligible participants will have a choice of attending one of the focus groups being held in locations across Canada or answering questions in a survey. The focus groups will typically last 2 hours and consist of 6 to 8 people. There will be a brief presentation and an open question and

answer session. Focus groups will be held in late October/early November and participants will be paid $65.00.
