July 18-23 is Cleveland Public Safety Week

Week to highlight, thank and celebrate first responders


Mayor Justin M. Bibb declared the week of July 18 through July 23, 2022, Public Safety Week in the City of Cleveland. The focus of Public Safety Week is to engage the community and raise awareness of the work of first responders, and to highlight existing career opportunities within Public Safety. 

“Our first responder members of Cleveland Police, Fire, Emergency Medical Service and Animal Care and Control serve the residents of our community each and every day,” said Mayor Bibb. “First responders dedicate their careers to taking care of others, and it is only fitting that we honor them and highlight their outstanding work.”

The week will involve members of the Department of Public Safety engaging with residents and doing various demonstrations at recreation centers across the City. All week long Animal Care and Control will be highlighting adoptable dogs—and will waive adoption fees—and Public Safety’s social media platforms will showcase first responders across the division.

The week of recognition will culminate with Public Safety Community Fest on Saturday, July 23, 2022, from 1 to 4 p.m. Residents are invited to join the City of Cleveland in recognizing and celebrating first responders.  Come out and meet members of Public Safety and enjoy free food, a kids play zone, music and more!

Participants include the Cleveland Divisions of Police, Fire, Emergency Medical Service and Animal Care and Control, the Cleveland Division of Water, Cleveland City Council and Burton Bell Carr Community WOVU 95.9 FM.
