My name is Linda and happy FYI Friday.

Are you looking to get out and meet and socialize with other people who have hearing loss and learn about different hearing loss topics, and updated technology among other things? Because if so, I would like to share some exciting news with you. There is a convention coming up and it is called the Hearing Loss Association of America and people call it HLAA for short.

So what is the goal of HLAA? The goal is to offer programs and events on giving us the tools that we need to live and hear at our fullest potential. And the other goal is to show us that we do not have to face this alone, that we are in this together. So that being said, every year HLAA hosts a conference, and it's held in different areas of the United States. This year it will be held in Tampa, Florida, June 23rd through the 26th.

I highly recommend you check it out. The deadline is May 20th. So if you are interested, the website is below here if you want to take a look? So the reason for this convention is to support HLAA mission statement of providing valuable information and help support us as we become more informed as a consumer with a hearing loss. There will be many different workshops demonstration with vendors, social events, guest speakers, and plenty, plenty more.

So, I guarantee if you attend you will leave with a wealth of information, as well as new friendships. So, please contact us if you have any questions. I'd be happy to help you and I hope to see you there. Bye.

Hello! Welcome to FYI Friday!

As we all know, summer is quickly approaching, meaning the temperature will rise. Hot temperatures like 80°, 90°, and 100°.

Just a friendly reminder for everyone. Don’t leave your kids or pets, any pet like a dog, cat, bird, hamster, any pet, don’t leave them in your car. Why? Because the temperature inside your car without AC is more than the outside temperature.

I’ll show you an example.

-- Infographic Example appears --

An infographic with the headline reading "Please don't leave ANIMALS or CHILDREN in HOT CARS" There is a sad looking dog inside of a car. Next to it is a chart comparing the outside temperatures and inside temperatures.

Outside temp 75 inside temp 118
Outside temp 77 inside temp 123
Outside temp 81 inside temp 138
Outside temp 90 inside temp 143
Outside temp 94 inside temp 145

-- Infographic Example disappears --

See the outside temperature compared to inside the car. VERY HOT. Kids, animals, and pets can’t tolerate the heat. So just a reminder don’t leave your kids and pets in your car. If you happen to see a child in a car crying or a pet panting in a hot car, what to do? Stay by the car and call 911.

They will come and safely get the child or pet from the car. So to remind you again, don’t leave your kids and pets in your car.

Have a great summer, stay cool, and stay safe.

Thank you for watching.
