Cleveland Welcomes Two New Fire Engines to Response Fleet

As part of Mayor Frank G. Jackson’s initiative to replace, upgrade and improve the City of Cleveland’s Public Safety Response Fleet, the Cleveland Division of Fire welcomed two new fire engines, which will replace apparatuses at Fire Station 10 on East 101th Street and at Fire Station 39 on Lorain Avenue in Cleveland. These new engines will help ensure that the Division of Fire continues to provide the community with a dependable, safe, state-of-the-art response fleet. This photo opportunity was held at Cleveland’s Fire Station 10.

Safety Tips From the Division of Fire

For Neighborhoods: Residents are asked to keep an eye out for groups of people hanging around vacant houses where there have been boards ripped off or doors kicked in. Those conducting "urban mining" may be stealing pipes, and if there is a strong gas smell in the area the Division of Fire should be called at 911. If there is suspicious activity, the Police should be called.

Kitchen Safety: The #1 rule is to never leave a stove unattended. All are reminded not to cook while sleepy or under medication, and to never let children cook unsupervised. -More

Smoke Alarms: Residents are asked to check smoke alarms and change batteries when necessary, practice an escape plan, and have a pre-planned meeting place in the event of a fire. Assistance is available from the Red Cross Operation Save-A-Life Program (216.361.5535). -More

Car and Bike Safety: Seat belts and helmets should be worn at all times.

Fire Safety is the responsibility of all residents. Further information is available at the Fire Public Education Unit (216.664.6386) or from Fire Headquarters (216.664.6800)
