The Fort Sill Army Hearing Program strives to prevent hearing loss and enhance communication for noise exposed personnel. The program has four major elements: hearing readiness, clinical hearing services, operational hearing services, and hearing conservation. Good hearing enables a soldier and/or civilian employee to maintain critical situational awareness and effective voice communication in any environment (i.e. garrison, industrial, training, operational and combat missions). Noise induced hearing loss is a significant negative personal, financial, and mission impact for our soldiers, civil service employees, and the Army. Hearing is a soldier's most sophisticated sensor. We HEAR the enemy long before we see the enemy!
