Women's History Month: Women in Public Safety

The City of Cleveland held its fourth annual celebration to honor women in public safety, including the Divisions of Police, Fire, and Emergency Medical Service. Remarks were given by Police Chief Calvin Williams and Assistant Director Tim Hennessey. The event was held in the Cleveland City Hall Rotunda for Women’s History Month.

Mayor Frank G. Jackson is hosting a press conference today at 11:00 a.m. addressing a lawsuit to be filed by the City of Cleveland against the State of Ohio. Cleveland, along with more than 80 municipalities today are filing separate suits challenging Ohio Senate Bill 331 (S.B. 331). In effect on March 21, the bill attempts to prevent Cleveland and other Ohio municipalities from regulating the commercial installation of cell wireless equipment in public spaces. Mayor Jackson strongly opposes this amendment as it raises serious questions concerning local government rights, constitutional authority, and control of City property.

“All that we do is about the people and whether or not they are better off as a result of what we do. The measure of our progress is whether we – in particular, the least of us – are able to participate in the prosperity and quality of life that we create as a community.”
Mayor Frank G. Jackson

The Goal of the Greater Cleveland Fisher House Organization is to raise $7,000,000 for the construction of a Fisher House (there are currently 62 houses in operation across the US, Germany, and England) that will be located on the grounds of the Louis Stokes Cleveland VA Medical Center (VAMC), the third largest VA hospital in the US.

The City of Cleveland is accepting applications for the Division of Fire. Applications are available Wednesday, March 15 to Saturday, April 15. Testing is Saturday, April 1 to Sunday, April 30. The new openings are due in part to the mayor’s enhanced 2017 budget, and the retirement of veteran firefighters from the division.

Bob Hope: An American Treasure tells the story of the Guinness Book’s “most honored” man through a series of themed modules that celebrate his comedic contributions, achievements in entertainment, relationships with US Presidents and his other passion – the game of golf.

Clevelanders can become professional American Red Cross Certified Lifeguards. Successful applicants must be at least 15 years old by the age of March 31st, 2017. Successful completion of the course does not guarantee employment with the City of Cleveland.

A new traffic pattern along East 152nd Street between Woodworth Avenue and South Waterloo Road will be part of the ongoing road improvements and upgrades. Traffic will be moved to the east side of the roadway and two-way traffic will be maintained. We ask that motorists remain alert for lane shifts. Barrels will be used to indicate the direction of traffic. The direction change will remain in place until August 2017.
