Snow Emergency Parking Ban Declared
Parking prohibited on streets on which signs are posted
CLEVELAND – Michael McGrath, Director of Public Safety for the City of Cleveland, has declared a Snow Emergency Parking Ban for the city of Cleveland effective at 9:00 a.m. on Thursday, December 15, 2016. As a result, stopping, standing, and parking of vehicles will be restricted and prohibited on City streets with posted red and white signs UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE.
Parking is prohibited on designated Snow Emergency streets, which are identified as necessary for transportation, the movement of food and fuel supplies, medical care, fire, health and police protection and other vital facilities of the City.
Significant snowfall can cause streets to become congested and un-passable. Vehicles left parked in the roadway prevent snowplows from clearing streets, which can make driving down these streets impossible. The resultant bottlenecks and gridlock can hamper response by emergency vehicles.
For this reason, citizens are encouraged to avoid parking vehicles on all city streets to allow snow plows sufficient time to remove snow and ice from the roads.
CLEVELAND: Police Chief Calvin D. Williams and Executive Director Chas W. Lane, Jr., of the Cleveland Police Foundation are proud to announce that funding for the purchase of ballistic vests for the Cleveland Police Canine Unit has been generously donated by A. Ripepi and Sons Funeral Homes, Inc., located in Cleveland and Middleburg Heights, and by SRT K9 Unit. The specialized vests were personally fitted to each canine and are now a part of daily operations. The vests will provide ballistic protection for our canine partners as they patrol each day to keep the citizens of the city of Cleveland safe.
“We rely on our canines each day to assist their human partners in efforts to reduce crime in the city of Cleveland,” said Police Chief Calvin D. Williams. “It is important to ensure the safety of each of our dogs.”
“A. Ripepi and Son’s and SRT K9 are especially happy to be a part of the effort to keep the canine officers safe,” Said Ed Ripepi. “We are proud to support the Cleveland Division of Police by providing the vests for the Canine Unit.”
“Our sincere thanks to A. Ripepi and Son’s Funeral Homes, Inc. and to SRT K9 for their generosity and making the availability of these vests possible,” said Chas W. Lane, Jr., Executive Director of the Cleveland Police Foundation.
The canines are now equipped with the vests and will utilize them daily during the course of their duties. Canine officers perform dangerous duties each day on patrol. The ballistic protection is a much needed addition to the tools utilized in routine canine law enforcement duties.
