The Fire Department promotes life safety for all citizens through:

  • Education
  • Code enforcement
  • Emergency medical and rescue services (about privacy policy)
  • Non-emergency support services
  • Fire Prevention Services

Install a Photoelectric Smoke Alarm - The department is giving away and installing 2500 new photoelectric smoke alarms in the homes of Shaker residents. To qualify, you must:

  • Be a resident of Shaker Heights
  • Permit the Fire Department to install the smoke detectors
  • Not have an automatic, monitored alarm system

UPDATE: Free smoke alarms are no longer available. The supply has been exhausted due to the large number of requests.

The cities of Shaker Heights and University Heights are exploring the feasibility of combining some fire services. Consultants hired through a grant from The Cleveland Foundation held a public input session in May at which the project's scope and analytic process were presented. Read the Final Report.
