Thanks for the photos. I wonder if you have any of the observers covering their ears to protect themselves from permanent hearing loss as result of the siren and horns of emergency vehicles. Yes everyone enjoys a little celebration and reasonable noise - but unless you hand out ear plugs you are subjecting the masses- especially children to hearing damage. A siren is over 120 decibels at 10 feet. That 10 feet is about the distance from the fire engine to the parade spectators. That means that permanent hearing damage will occur in about 10 seconds. It is interesting to note that many fire departments now have the sirens at the trucks’ bumpers, rather than on top of the cab as was the custom for so many years. The reason was to reduce the noise level in the cab and the lawsuits frim firemen for hearing loss. So now the sirens are aimed right at the parade spectators – about the same height as a 3- or 5-year-old child. Even more reason not to sound off during the parade. Keep the sirens for emergencies only, please, and horns only to catch the attention of people inside cars, with glass and metal to shield them from the noise.
