115-for-deaf system, implemented by IES Solutions, which allows deaf people to reach the 115 service, was used during Twist (Tidal Wave in Southern Tyrrhenian Sea), the international exercise on the tsunami risk, where a deaf person trapped inside the Amalfi town hall offices contacted, via 115-for-deaf, the Fire Brigades, which reached the trapped person and put it to safety.
