That's not really what he needs.
Instead, he should get a smoke detector that plays a recorded message in a parent's voice -- they're astonishingly effective. Kids *will*not* sleep through Mom's voice saying "Jason, get up! The house is on fire!"

Rig up a sprinkler system that will spray him when the smoke alarm goes off.

But when the alarm stops making noise, is it then "on"?
OK, you did see the ;-) right? That's a smirk, as if I'm joking. Just a long fought over question in the American English language. And yes, it's most often said and accepted as he originally posted.

Are you sure he doesn't need a sleep study? That sounds/reads unreal. I would hope there is nothing wrong with the kid.

there are devices made for the deaf that are placed under the pillow and which vibrate to wake the sleeper.

Get a dog and train hi/her to respond to the smoke detector alarm by jumping on son's bed.
Can be done.

Smoke detectors cost around three bucks. Buy six of 'em.
And remind everybody else sleeping in the house to rescue him if he doesn't wake up.

Argh! Tbird is still sending direct, no matter how slow and careful I am about picking the right selection!
They sell adaptive technology smoke alarms/repeaters for hearing impaired folks, with a strobe light and even a vibrating plate to put under the pillow. Mebbe you could replace your friends smoke alarms with the fancy hardwired ones that also listen for their siblings and go off in sympathy, and mount one on his headboard.
But anyone past toddler age that sleeps so soundly that it is difficult to wake them, needs medical evaluation, starting with a hearing test. I kind of envy him- I <wish> I could sleep on airplanes- but there won't always be others around to wake him when needed.

Sandy, the attack Chihuahua is on top of me whenever I go to bed. My roommate is upset because his dog likes me better than she likes him. I usually wake up to find the little critter in my lap or curled up next to me in some fashion. The only problem is that she will often start barking at a noise at 3:00am and it's like a hand grenade going off in my lap. She's too cute to be mean to or throw against the wall. ^_^

Sears used to make an AC powered smoke detector that could not only wake the dead, but make 'em sit up and cover their ears in pain!
My ex BIL had one mounted in the bedrooms hallway and it once went off while I was in said hallway. I damn near had a heart attack, it was so loud. Literally knocked me back against the wall. It had to be mounted within 10 ft of an AC outlet or hardwired into house wiring.
