Beltone of the Tri-Cities reminds families to be safe when enjoying Fourth of July fireworks by packing ear protection for each family member and remaining a safe distance away.
As your family gets ready to enjoy fireworks next week on July 4th, Beltone of the Tri-Cities would like to remind everyone that it only takes a few simple actions to prevent lifelong hearing problems. All those ‘rockets bursting in air’ can generate sounds in the range of 120-140 decibels. At these noise levels, the safe exposure time is zero. This means that noise-induced hearing damage will occur without the use of hearing protection. The decibels levels experienced by each individual attending a fireworks show vary as a function of distance and age.
