|Sertoma International, the nation’s third oldest civic organization, has introduced SERTOMA SAFEEARS!© … to hear the future, a national service project for use by its nearly 700 clubs to promote the important message that noise-induced hearing loss is preventable.
Sertoma’s focus is supporting the more than 50 million people with speech, hearing and language disorders. In following its mission of SERvice TO MAnkind, the Sertoma clubs’ community awareness activities focus in three areas: youth organizations/schools, workplaces and general awareness.
In following the SERTOMA SAFEEARS!© objectives, the Brainerd Area Sertoma Club will be increasing awareness about noise-induced hearing loss (NIHL) and motivating audiences to take action against NIHL by understanding the problem and its solutions.
The Brainerd Area Sertoma Club will spread the word that 30 million people are at risk in the workplace, in recreational settings and at home by exposure to dangerous levels of noise each day at the Crow Wing County Fair, Brainerd International Raceway Lucas Oil NHRA Nationals and North Central Speedway.For more information visit our SAFEEars page.
