About Us






The ReadyCuyahoga website was jointly created by the Cuyahoga County Office of Emergency Management, the City of Cleveland Department of Public Safety, the Cuyahoga County Board of Health, and the Greater Cleveland Chapter of the American Red Cross. Together, our organizations have pledged to work together to increase information sharing, communication, cooperation and collaboration in the field of emergency management. Our mission is to strengthen area-wide disaster coordination by sharing programs, policies, information, joint planning and training.
