PARMA, Ohio - Parma’s annual Safety Fair, a community family event for area residents to learn valuable safety information, is scheduled for Saturday, April 29 from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the Parma Justice Center, 5555 Powers Blvd. The Cleveland Browns will also participate in this year’s Fair, highlighted by a visit from a member of the team (player and time TBA).

The event is a cooperative effort of the Parma Fire Department, Parma Police Department, City of Parma and Parma City Council. The highlight of the Safety Fair is the medical chopper landing, which is scheduled at noon, after which kids and their parents can explore the chopper. The Fair also includes a grease fire demonstration, a K-9 demonstration and information about gun safety, fingerprinting, Internet safety and much more. Organizations represented at the fair include University Hospitals; Safe Kids, Safe Communities; Cleveland Metroparks; and Parma Animal Shelter. 

Mayor Tim DeGeeter is excited that the Browns want to be involved, and calls the day “educational and fun for the whole family, and something our residents look forward to every year.”

In conjunction with the Safety Fair, a community shredding event is scheduled during the same hours at the main parking lot of the UH Parma Medical Center, off Powers Blvd across from the Parma branch library.
The shredding services will be handled by All Ohio Secure Shred and are paid for by a grant from the Cuyahoga County Solid Waste District. 

Parma residents should bring identification – a driver’s license or utility bill – and also a donation of canned or non-perishable food items for the Parma Hunger Center, which will be on-site collecting the food items.
