Bedfordshire Fire and Rescue Service held an open day for deaf adults and children at the weekend.
It was to raise awareness of fire safety initiatives for deaf people, such as vibrating smoke detectors and a 999 text service.
One of the visitors said: "I didn't know about texting 999, I had no idea about that before. And also I'm moving to a new house so I will need some fire alarms and things like that. So I need that information as well, it's really, really important."
150 people attended the event at Dunstable Fire Station. A team of interpreters were there throughout the day, helping to pass on important fire safety information. Children also got the chance to dress up as firefighters and try out the hoses on the fire engines.
Claire Holland from the Bedfordshire Deaf Children Society said the event had been invaluable: "It's crucially important, it's literally a life or death situation isn't it, a fire? And there's been no training before for us, so I think it's really essential that this happens."
