Senior Citizens

For our senior citizens, we provide and install residential lock boxes for emergency access, smoke detector installation and battery replacement, and the Community Care Monitor which automatically checks on their welfare each day. 

For the community at large, we also provide free CPR instruction on the third Wednesday of each month. Call the Fire Station at the non-emergency number 440-871-1214 to sign up. Please note this class is offered as an informational class only, no certification is available.

Heartsaver CPR/AED Classes

Our CPR/AED Class offerings are currently suspended. We will provide updates when we return to community course offerings.

Community Programs

We collect aluminum cans for burned children all year. We conduct tours for schools and community groups.  We also provide home safety inspections for families hoping to adopt children.


In addition to in-house daily training and education for our own personnel, we provide prevention and safety training to all city employees in CPR, AED, and fire extinguisher use.
