CNIB Emergency Intervenor Services Program

CNIB Emergency Intervenor Services Program

Free access to this course is sponsored by CNIB Ontario.

CNIB’s Emergency Intervenor Service Program is an innovative program that connects Ontario CNIB clients with vision and hearing loss (deafblind) with an intervenor in an emergency situation. A trained intervenor, who serves as the eyes and ears of the individual, facilitates communication with a first responder or other emergency personnel.

The CNIB Emergency Intervenor Services Program course will help demonstrate how CNIB’s Emergency Intervenor Service works and how First Responders can assist someone who is deafblind. In addition to general program information, this course provides awareness videos specifically designed for police, EMS, and hospital personnel as well as a series of sighted guide techniques videos.
