Siren noise pollution

As a newer tenant to 520 S. State, I've broken down a few times in tears due to the overabundance of noise pollution. It is unbearable with the 24/7 emergency vehicle sirens, horn honking, motorcycles, red line construction (Harrison & State), and the list goes on. What can we possibly do to attempt to manage this noise pollution besides an 8 a. noise ordinance??? The emergency sirens are MUCH too loud. Maybe at a 120 decibel level which is impairing??? I've been experiencing sleep deprivation big time. Any ideas how to address this?

    Downtown is noisy. I'm not sure what you expected, but you should check your lease and see if you can sublet

The City of Chicago is pleased to inform you that the application period for the entry-level Firefighter/EMT exam started July 16, 2014 and will run through September 16. This is the period of time when applicants can sign up for the exam, which will be administered on December 13 and 14, 2014. In 2006, the age to sit for the exam was 19 and the age to enter the academy was 20. We have lowered the age to sit for the exam and enter the academy to 18. It is our hope that younger individuals who get on the eligibility list will be motivated to attend college and stay out of trouble and will find a sense of opportunity about their futures.

Attached is the job announcement, as well as the FAQ’s, which provides all of the key information about the application process and the exam. In case you’d like to cut-and-paste the link to the application website, here it is: www.cityofchicago.org/FireApplication. The website also contains links to additional information.

During the posting period, applicants can call (312) 744-4976 or email fire-application@cityofchicago.org with any questions or concerns, and they can also seek assistance in Room 100 in City Hall.

We have also modified the way candidates can apply for Veterans Preference. Applicants may apply for Veterans Preference at any time, even after the posting has closed. There is no longer a cutoff date for the submission of documents showing eligibility for Veterans Preference. However, the later the preference is applied for, the later it will be applied. Detailed instructions on how to apply for the Veterans Preference are included in the attached FAQs.
