Severe Weather

DHCC’s Executive Director Neil McDevitt talks about how Severe Weather can affect telecommunications access for deaf and hard of hearing people. In this blog, he talks about the affect of power outages on telecommunications devices and presents some ideas on how to keep your devices charged during power outages.
