The Role of CARE Local 1975:

CARE 1975 is the Labor Union for Cleveland (Ohio) EMS paramedics, EMTs, dispatchers and sergeants.


Union Solutions

CARE 1975 is actively working to improve CEMS, both for employees and for the citizens we serve. Some of our recent initiatives include:

  • Implementation of a mental health peer support group as a means of combating PTSD.
  • Advocating for a scheduled vehicle replacement program to increase ambulance reliability.
  • Exploring ways to reduce attrition within CEMS, including working with legislators at the state and local levels to obtain a 25-year retirement plan similar to other public safety agencies.

Community Outreach


CARE 1975 participates in a variety of community outreach activities, including distributing free bicycle helmets to youth, providing free medical coverage to the Ronald McDonald House Tackle the Tower fundraiser, and participating in charity events such as the Officer Down softball tournament.



Cleveland EMS is now accepting entry level applications for Emergency Medical Dispatcher (EMD).

CEMS EMDs are full-fledged CARE members. Come join our team!
