    This poses an interesting question. What is a reasonable accommodation for the job description of "security guard" for a deaf person?

      I could see you easily doing some security jobs. Watching cameras for example. For other jobs I don't think so. We have a deaf lady who works as a Maid here in the hotel. Part of a Maid's job is to direct guests to the emergency exits if she hears the fire alarm. Not being able to hear the alarm means she can not do part of her job. I could see this being a major problem for a deaf person.

        Not sure about Canada, but NFPA rules require visual cues for alarm activation, so she should know the fire alarm is going off.

(if i need to contact cops or fireman no problem i have my own methods and fast one too as well to contact them) but if i have to deal with people in general that would be a problem.

            I used to be a member of the NFPA (too expensive). There "rules" are usually adopted by most north american jurisdictions but not all. We have 2 properties in the US. I've visited one. We do not have visual fire alarms everywhere in the hotel. We do have designated "handicapped rooms" that have strobe lights connected to the fire alarm system.

              most hotels have those fire alarms in every room and in halls. even apartments have them too. its becoming a must for us to have that everywhere cuz even if theres not many deaf people.. there is lot of seniors that might have trouble hearing high pitch sounds of fire alarm (its high pitch right?) so now most major hotels have those plus tty and closed caption etc etc.

                  Ever wonder if smoke rises then why are the exit signs at ceiling level? Hmmmm
                  THE AVERAGE RESPONSE TIME FOR A 911 CALL IS FOUR MINUTES
                  THE AVERAGE RESPONSE TIME FOR A .357 MAGNUM ROUND IS 1400 FEET PER SECOND?

                      I have seen them about 2 feet above the floor level in a hospital exactly because of the reason you mention. They'd be vandalized in a very short time in an hotel if they were installed there however.

                        Maybe they should have a universal color of the rope lights run along the baseboards similar as they use in movie isles to make the isle visible. Like in case of fire follow the green lights and not the red.

                          There are 2 stairways in the tower of my downtown hotel. I wanted to use a red SORTIE (Exit) sign on one side & a green SORTIE sign on the other side. In case of an evacuation with a stairway blocked we could announce over the pa which stairway to use. Then I remembered my brother & others are coloured blind. They don't see red or green!
