Hey everyone, I have been with Cleveland EMS for 7 years. I am an to as well and have been for a few years. I was raised up in a union home with my Dad being on a fire department and know what union means. I am running for 2nd vice president in hopes of making our division better. I want to be able to give us better work environment. Our union is as strong as our members and I want our members to know I have their back. I'm your huckleberry.
Christina “Chrissy” Miller- Secretary
-Hired on March 2, 2015
-FTO since 2018
-Spent nearly seven years serving the Glenville neighborhood at Medic 30 (Feb. 2017- Dec.
2023) before moving to Medic 31 in Collinwood (Dec. 2023-present).
-Longtime City resident (currently living in the West Park neighborhood).
-Participated in several fundraisers and activities, including American Lung Association’s Fight
for Air Climb (2020, 2021, 2023), 9/11 Memorial StairClimb (2022), Union Softball team, and
Union Summer Volleyball team (2022 and 2023).
-I also drove to Columbus several years ago to
watch the Ohio State House Reps vote on PTSD provisions for First Responders.
-Prior to EMS, I graduated from Lake Erie College with a Bachelor's Degree in Biology (May
2010). I briefly worked in research at the Cleveland Clinic before switching careers entirely.
In my nearly nine years here, I have seen many union board members come and go, most of
them due to promotions. I did not take the last captain’s exam, and have no interest in taking
any promotional exam(s) in the immediate future. In the last couple of years, I have seen the
union board strive to maintain a level of transparency with union members. I hope to maintain
that transparency and integrity that comes with the responsibility of being a board member. I
look forward to serving as part of your union board as secretary.
