Loud firework noises can cause excruciating brain pain, cause us to lose balance, feel nauseous, and cause other serious symptoms in people who cannot process these sounds. PTSD, which produces nightmarish terror, is also triggered by the loud explosive fireworks that we hear all over the neighborhood on the 4th of July and many times during the weeks before and after the holiday. It would be a great kindness if all of our neighbors limited the duration of firework displays to a single day and the earlier evening hours of July 4th, and made sure that all loud “artillery” fireworks are set-off in isolated/industrial areas away from our neighborhood. Thank you for doing what you can to reduce the suffering of our neighbors seriously impacted by firework noise
