Public Notices


The Richmond Heights Division of Fire will begin conducting its annual Fire Hydrant Testing Program May 4th.  The work will be completed by the end of June. 

The goal of our testing program is to assure a reliable water supply in the event of a fire. The testing is required by the Insurance Service Office (ISO) and must be completed annually in order to maintain our Fire Protection Rating, which directly affects property owner insurance premiums.

For more information, visit the Division of Fire page on this website


Department of Safety Improves on ISO Public Protection Classification

Congratulations to the City of Richmond Heights' Department of Safety for completing the ISO - Public Protection Classification Survey and earning an exceptional rating of 3 out of 10 (with 1 being the best possible score). This represents an improvement from the City's previous rating of 4. The ISO collects and evaluates information from all communities in the United States on their fire suppression capabilities. Richmond Heights is 1 of only 184 communities in the State of Ohio assigned a Class 3 PPC.

What this means to you, as residents or businesses in the City of Richmond Heights, is not only are you being protected by some of the finest personnel and best facilities in the region, you may also be entitled to a lower rate on your homeowners, or business insurance. This rating goes into effect on August 1st, 2015. Be sure to check with your insurance carrier to see how this may affect your rates. Again, kudos to the fine men and women of the Department of Safety for this well deserved acknowledgement.


Promoting Safer Schools
People can anonymously report suspicious activity in schools through state tip line

"If you SEE Something, SEND Something!"

More than 450 Ohio schools, including some locally, have signed up for Ohio's new SaferOH tip line, launched in January 2015 to give students, parents and teachers an anonymous way to report school safety concerns.

Calls or texts to 844-SaferOH (844-723-3764) will be answered by analysts in Ohio Homeland Security's Threat Assessment and Prevention Unit. When action is needed, the TAP Unit will immediately forward the information to the school's designated personnel and to local police, if necessary.

The Cuyahoga County Solid Waste District is pleased to announce the recipients of its 2015 Community Recycling Awareness Grant

Grants totaling $161,311 were awarded to 33 communities and 13 schools and non-profit organizations in Cuyahoga County. Grants will be used to establish recycling and composting programs in schools and workplaces, purchase recycling containers for public spaces, conduct shred events, and educate residents about curbside recycling via brochures, videos, and mailers. These grants programs were created by the Cuyahoga County Solid Waste District to help promote and expand recycling in the county. Grants are awarded annually, on a competitive basis. Applications are due in February each year.
Last year, thirty-eight Cuyahoga County communities received a Community Recycling Awareness Grant which enabled them to collectively distribute recycling information to over 208,500 households, conduct 39 shred days that generated 220.45 tons of paper, and purchase 119 public recycling containers.

Richmond Heights was the recipient of $4637 which will be utilized for funding 2 shred days (May 9, 2015 & September 26, 2015), 40 cases of recycle bags (available to residents now at City Hall in the Recreation Department) and newspaper ads to publicize the shred day events.
