Hurricane Katrina Battery Relief Program

From Cochlear of Americas:
“We at Cochlear are very saddened by the devastation Hurricane Katrina has left behind. As always, we are committed to supporting our users and
keeping them ‘on the air,’ even those displaced by the event.
“In an effort to provide some assistance, Cochlear Americas is launching a battery relief program. Through this program, we will provide a three-month
supply of batteries to Nucleus recipients displaced by the storm. The batteries can be claimed by calling a special phone number that has been established in Denver. Details for the program are as follows:
“The toll-free help line is 1-800-458-4999. Hours are 8:00 a.m. – 5:00 p.m. (MST), Monday ? Friday.
“Recipients will be asked to provide their name, device serial number, and an address we can ship to. Cochlear will ship a 90-day supply of #675 Zinc air batteries at no cost to the requestor.
“In addition, Cochlear is working with the national Self Help for Hard of Hearing People (SHHH), to provide batteries. SHHH has organized a relief support group, Hear2Care, to help victims with hearing loss and deafness get technology and batteries.
“Cochlear is also working with our audiology clinics to coordinate services for those who may have been evacuated to a different city. For more information, please contact our Hurricane Hotline at 1-800-458-4999. 400 Inverness Parkway, Suite 400, Englewood Colorado 80112, USA.”
