Tim Kohlmeier, head of Monroe County's Office of Emergency Management, will advise people with hearing loss on coping with "emergency situations." Imagine yourself in a South Carolina shelter while your house is flooded and your hearing aid batteries are either not charged, not with you, or not available at flooded drug stores.  Disasters exist in many forms.  The Office of Emergency Management executes plans for disaster relief before, during and after any type of man-made or natural disaster or wartime situation.

All HLAA programs are free. Anyone interested in hearing loss is welcome.

HLAA Rochester Chapter meetings are held in the Parish Hall at St. Paul's Episcopal Church, East Avenue at 25 Westminster Road, across from the George Eastman House Museum.
