Welcome to the offical website of the Cleveland Association of Rescue Employees I.L.A. Local 1975





During our January 2020 membership meetings we conducted a vote of No Confidence in Cleveland EMS Commissioner Nicole Carlton. The motion passed with 187 members voting No Confidence and 1 member opposing the measure. At the time of the vote CARE had 254 members, which means that 66 eligible members did not participate. This means that 74% of CARE members voted No Confidence, 0.004% opposed the measure, and 26% did not take part in the vote.

  • 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.
