Every year the City of Cleveland showcases its public works, safety and sustainability professionals and the many different career opportunities available with the City. Thousands of students, kindergarten to sixth grade, from the Cleveland Metropolitan School District, private and charter schools come face-to-face with the people and equipment essential to protecting the health and safety of Cleveland residents and visitors to this wonderful green city on a blue lake.
The students get a chance to discover and explore possible future careers and learn more about public works, safety and environmental sustainability through exhibits and demonstrations that are captivating, fun and educational. They learn how they too can make a difference.
We are able to have clean drinking water and streams, sanitation, safe streets and neighborhood sustainability programs, efficient emergency response teams, and much more because of Public Works, Safety, and Sustainability professionals.
When you see a street sweeper, a sewer or waterline maintenance crew, a garbage or salt truck, police and fire, or residents being taught to install a rain barrel or rain garden, remember all the work being done (seen and unseen) is to serve the entire Cleveland community and visitors.
