Beeping Easter Egg Hunt For Blind And Visually Impaired Children

ORLANDO – Easter egg hunts are a cherished Easter tradition, which is why it is important to ensure that all children, including those living with blindness or visual impairments, can participate. To address this, the Orlando Fire Department Arson/Bomb Squad, along with the Orlando Fire Department and the Orlando Police Department, hosted a unique audio-based Easter egg hunt featuring specially designed “beeping” eggs for children who participate in programs through Lighthouse Central Florida.

Hosted in partnership with the Orlando Fire Department, Orlando Police Department, Lighthouse Central Florida, Dr. Phillips Center for the Performing Arts and Mission BBQ, this event is brought more than 20 children to the front lawn of the Dr. Phillips Center for the Performing Arts.

Lighthouse Central Florida provides education, independent life skills, and job readiness training and coaching to people of all ages living with vision impairment or blindness and their families. Serving Orange, Seminole, and Osceola counties, the organization is the only nonprofit provider of life-changing vision rehabilitation services in the region.
