TELEPHONE DEVICES FOR THE DEAF INSTALLED AT EVERY OHIO PATROL POST

 TELEPHONE DEVICES FOR THE DEAF INSTALLED AT EVERY OHIO PATROL POST
 COLUMBUS, Ohio, Sept. 28 /PRNewswire/ -- The Ohio State Highway Patrol announced today that Telephone Devices for the Deaf (TDD) have now been installed at every Patrol Post in the state. "Hearing impaired individuals with compatible TDDs will be able to telephone any patrol post in the State of Ohio to report a crash, an emergency within the patrol's jurisdiction or other information," Patrol Superintendent Colonel Thomas W. Rice said.
 The TDDs consist of a four-row, standard typewriter keyboard with a video display. A user simply dials the number, types a message and the receiver obtains the displayed message. These devices are also required by the American Disabilities Act to be installed in buildings where there are four or more public pay phones on site.
 The Ohio State Highway Patrol is a recognized emergency service provider with telephone access 24 hours a day to all of the patrol posts statewide. A toll-free phone listing of the closest local patrol post can be found on the inside cover of any phone directory.
